We provide our customers with fast, reliable and secure services to move containers and keep trade flowing through the strategically located port of Southampton.
We have created a high-quality integrated business – two deep water ports with freight rail terminals at London Gateway and Southampton, a rapidly expanding logistics park and an advanced software business providing online links to customers and border control.
With this, we provide the right trading infrastructure and smart logistical solutions for our customers. Each year, we transport around 3.6 million TEUs – enough to stretch from London to Buenos Aires and back. What’s more, over £43 billion worth of goods in these containers travel to and from countries beyond the EU.
We believe in the UK market and have the ambition and the resources to boost growth, support businesses, create jobs and improve living standards. Our sector-leading trading expertise is recognised by regularly providing technical and strategic advice to the UK Government.
