Based in Middlesbrough, Teesport is a major deep sea complex and a gateway for international trade
Handling 28 million tonnes per year, the port supports the movement of international imports and exports throughout the north of the UK, and is a key driver and enabler of the Northern Powerhouse strategy.
Positioned less than a mile from the mouth of the Tees, the deep sea complex has an onsite intermodal rail terminal for direct access to the national rail network in addition to easy accessible road and air networks.
Over £1billion has been invested directly into the site over the past ten years, bringing improvements in infrastructure and state-of-the-art equipment to expand capacity.
The site is owned and operated by PD Ports and supports a variety of cargoes. Three ro-ro berths and two container terminals with a capacity of 650,000 TEU, and seven RTG cranes and five ship-to-shore cranes are supported by specialist teams and provide easy lock-free access to the North Sea and beyond.
With over 26 vessel calls a week, Teesport is able to serve worldwide markets with ease. The specialist stevedoring service offers flexibility and technical expertise to meet different requirements.
