As the lifeblood of our region, the River Tees provides businesses throughout the north and further afield with a gateway to global markets and international trade. But its impact stretches beyond cargo ships and containers. Managed by PD Ports, the river – together with Teesport – contributes £1.4 billion to the UK economy every year. The Brookfield owned group operates across 12 locations nationwide, supporting over 22,000 jobs in the regional supply chain and playing a crucial role in building a more prosperous future for the Tees Valley.
Bridge celebrates the work of not just PD Ports, but also its customers, partners and stakeholders who are collectively creating a better place to live, learn and work.
Kirsten Donkin, Head of PR, Marketing and Communications, said: “Published twice a year, Bridge draws together insights from business leaders, local personalities, and regional partners, as we strive to deliver the promise of levelling up, and build on our region’s position as one of the UK’s most exciting industrial and cultural areas.
“The publication also aims to offer perspectives on how we can continue to address challenges and seize new opportunities to make certain we achieve our shared ambition, benefiting both the region and the nation.”
Cementing a brand partnership now in its tenth year, Bridge follows close to a decade’s worth of work which has stretched across strategy, identity, design and digital. By building on our recent development of the Teesport identity, the new publication gave us licence to explore and unleash the creative shackles.
