The GBA Group of Companies handles in excess of two million vehicles per annum throughout the UK, and is synonymous with quality and efficiency in what is a time critical industry.

SGL’s Ro-Ro capability, together with its unique priority-freight infrastructure, represents to the Automotive industry a fresh and welcome introduction of capacity to what is a tremendously constrained supply chain – where new cars compete with containers, cruise, renewables and bulk for both space and flexibility.

Answering the challenges of its customers, GBA has now introduced no less than 6 European and Japanese brands to the Port. With just four days’ notice, GBA, leveraging its proprietary technology and best in class process know-how, together with the team at SGL, successfully set up a fully comprehensive Vehicles Distribution Terminal supporting the most demanding registration period in the year.
