Two years after Cefetra moved its operations from Glasgow to the Port of Rosyth, the recently opened agri-hub there – Scotland’s largest – completed a record month of activity in September.

During the month, the agri-hub handled over 100,000 tonnes of essential agricultural products delivered from four shipments for Cefetra. The hub, which opened earlier this year, handles an extensive range of agricultural products for the Scottish animal feed, food and drink and farming industries. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the port has worked with Cefetra to stay open and fully operational throughout a challenging summer.

The agri-hub saw Rosyth’s existing storage facilities significantly extended by the addition of a new, 200,000sq ft purpose-built agricultural products terminal, lifting the port’s storage capacity to around 100,000 tonnes. There is a new Liebherr mobile harbour crane for bulk handling capability and a new SAMSON ecological hopper, the first of its kind in the UK.

“I would like to thank Forth Ports and their team for all their hard work handling our cargos since the new agri-hub opened and in particular, over this last very busy month,” comments Cefetra managing director Andrew Mackay. “In these difficult times it is even more important that we can rely upon Forth Ports’ excellent team and facilities to help us deliver these essential products into the food supply chain of Scotland.”
