Port of London Authority Handbook 2016
Port of London Authority Chief Executive
There has never been a better time to look to the Port of London as the location of choice for your logistics hub in the UK. We are on the doorstep of the UK’s biggest consumer market. We also have the best road, rail and sea links to reach the rest of the country too.
As a port, and as an organisation, we are all about growth. Our latest economic survey shows there are plans for over £1 billion to be invested in Thames facilities over the next five years. Looking further ahead, our 20-year Thames Vision project shows the tonnage of cargo handled in the port has the potential to reach an all time high of 60-80 million tonnes.
Growth is happening now. In the last year we’ve been at the centre of new records being set on the Thames, welcoming ultra large container ships, hosting the largest ever cruise ship in central London, and seeing major developments in port and market centric logistical centres.
We’re ready to help you join this success story and make the most of the Thames. Please get in touch with our commercial manager, Glenda Frost, who will make sure you’re quickly in touch with the people who can turn your vision for operations on the Thames into reality.
