Tesco to ship wine by canal

Who would have envisaged that in the 21st century the local and global would come together again via the Manchester Ship Canal. Contrary to popular belief, despite the closure of Salford Docks in 1982, large parts of the Canal remained in commercial use with around 4000 shipping movements per anum. In recent years Kellogs and Rank Hovis have shifted the transport of bulk produce from the roads to the Canal. With increasing costs of fuel and road tax, inland waterways are rapidly becoming viable again. Now Tesco have added to the growing number of companies using the Canal this time to ship wine (good news for me!).
