  • Streamline Shipping Group celebrates 40th anniversary with new Aberdeen depot and job creation

Streamline Shipping Group has almost doubled warehouse capacity at its Aberdeen headquarters with a new 7,800m2 harbourside facility on Palmerston Quay – formerly Aberdeen Harbour’s historic fishmarket.

The move has allowed Streamline to increase its team of full-time yard operatives by 30 per cent, and double its full-time haulage drivers and vehicles, providing new job opportunities in the north east for those in the shipping and logistics industry.

Operations director James Roberts said: “As we enter our fifth decade in business, we’re delighted to be moving to a larger, more prominent facility in Aberdeen to cope with increased demand.

“Our new warehouse has far greater capacity, allowing us to process up to 5,000 items every day in Aberdeen alone. This will allow us to continue to strengthen our delivery services across our network, both in the UK and overseas, ensuring our customers’ packages and freight get where they need to be.”

Headquartered in Aberdeen, Streamline employs over 200 staff across the country with depots in Glasgow, Orkney, Shetland, and Inverness, and offices and chemical processing facilities in England and Norway. Over 50 vehicles and 150 trailers provide first-class deliveries every day throughout Scotland, the wider UK and around the world. The firm also has a special connection with Orkney and Shetland, where it provides lifeline parcel delivery services to and from mainland UK.

Mr Roberts continued: “We’re proud of the relationships we have built over the last 40 years – both in Shetland and Orkney, where we work closely with local communities to provide logistical links to the mainland, and with our clients all around the world.

“Over the last 40 years, we’ve seen a number of changes in the way people send parcels and freight – both locally and internationally. But one thing that hasn’t changed is our dedication to providing an unrivalled service to all of our customers. Whether they are an individual receiving a package on Orkney or a multi-billion-pound organisation shipping freight halfway around the globe, we are committed to providing the best delivery experience possible.”
