The Northwest based Viaduct Shipping has moved its unloading operation from Frodsham to Runcorn Docks.
Viaduct Shipping operate a number of barges and small coasters which transport imported wheat from Seaforth grain terminal for onward transport to Nelstrops mill in Stockport. In so doing they take some 1800 lorry journeys off the roads each year.
Viaduct Shipping found that in order to deliver the tonnages required by their customer they needed deeper water for the vessels to operate in and that has resulted in forming operational agreements with Runcorn Docks.
