Charles visits PD Ports

Prince Charles met senior staff and management, newly appointed apprentices and local school children today as he visited the offices of PD Ports to mark the 50th anniversary of trade through the Tees Dock in Middlesbrough, England. The Tees Dock is owned and operated by PD Ports and is the hub of operational activity at Teesport. Tees Dock is the premier container port in the North East and the UK’s best-connected feeder port.

During his visit he also had the opportunity to meet youngsters and mentors from the The High Tide Foundation

High Tide is a charitable foundation, created and driven by businesses on Teesport. It exists to raise aspirations and improve education and employment opportunities for young people on Teesside by bringing together companies who are customers, suppliers, operators and investors in Teesside, with the River Tees being the connecting theme.

The Prince of Wales met some of the young people who have benefitted from the programmes including four school-leavers from Teesside who spent 11 days working onboard a container ship that sailed to St Petersburg via Rotterdam, Riga and Helsinki, with local based shipping line, Containerships Ltd.
