The Port of Tilbury is the largest multipurpose deep water port on the River Thames.

Due to the Port’s proximity to Greater London and the South East (i.e. 70% of Britain’s population is within a 120 mile radius of Tilbury), Tilbury delivers lower supply chain costs and a lower carbon footprint for its customers using its developed multi-modal transport platforms.

The Port handles 16 million tonnes per annum, with Tilbury projected to double that throughput to 33 million tonnes over the next 15-20 years.

The port handles over 3,000 ships per year and over 13,000 road vehicles are handled per day.

With its own dedicated Crown Police Force, the port has full International Security (ISPS) compliance and has recently received full AEO accreditation from HMRC both in terms of security and customs procedures.

Tilbury2 is Tilbury’s new expansion project, the developments include a ro-ro terminal and a construction material aggregate terminal, moving more capacity to supporting the import and export of materials for a range of sectors.
