Britain's most centrally located deep sea port
Bristol Port is Britain’s most centrally located deep sea port bringing ships closer to the centre of the UK. This means huge savings in cost and emissions as the inland distributor’s leg is significantly reduced.
Bristol is also the only major UK port with North, South, East and West motorway and rail connections giving high quality, uncongested connections.
Privatised in 1991, Bristol Port remains a privately owned independent business with the entire 2,600 acres of dock estate zoned for industrial use. With a further 1,000 acres adjacent to the Port zoned for development it is not surprising that almost all the major retailers have Regional Distribution Centres nearby. The estate has huge potential for development by businesses from biomass power stations to manufacturers and retailers.
Over £450m has been invested in Bristol since privatisation to create one of the world’s most productive and technically advanced ports providing employment for over 7,600 people.
Bristol Port has permission to build a new £600m Deep Sea Container Terminal which will bring containers closer to their destinations than any other super post-Panamax port.
With a flexible, directly employed work-force, The Bristol Port Company has an enviable reputation for swift, queue-free handling of ships and cargo.
