The Port of Immingham, one of 21 harbours operated by the Associated British Ports (ABP) across England, Scotland and Wales, is the UK’s largest port by tonnage, handling up to 55 mln tn a year.
Apart from oil (20 mln tn) and coal (10 mln tn) handlings, Immingham offers an extensive range of lo-lo and ro-ro services to the north of continental Europe, Iceland, Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea region. The port features two in-dock box terminals – the deep-water Immingham Container Terminal, enabling customers to tranship deep-sea containers onto regular feeders, and DFDS Seaways’ Nordic Terminal, both serving around 15 vessel calls per week.
Customers of the Port of Immingham benefit from its easy access to major trade routes via modern road (M180, M18 and M1 motorways), rail (over 260 freight movements a week) and inland waterways (River Humber) infrastructure. Immingham offers a less than 24 hours link to a European market of some 170 mln people.
As a truly universal port, Immingham offers a broad spectrum of other services as well. There are eight ro-ro berths within the harbour, serving more than 30 sailings each week to/from northern Europe and Scandinavia with DFDS Seaways. Immingham is suitable also for handling various general cargo, incl. heavy-lift and out-of-gauge freight, with tandem lift crane capability.
Immingham is UK’s port of entry for major forest products, steel and offshore companies too, while around 25% of the country oil-refining capacity is located adjacent to the harbour. Last but not least, the Humber International Terminals 1 and 2 handle and store solid fuel destined for power generators as well as deal with other dry bulk goods such as biomass, animal feed, road salt and grains.
