Shipping and Facilities

Portsmouth International Port offers cargo shippers the facilities and expertise to ensure all goods are handled smoothly and efficiently:

  • Eight-hectare (20-acre) state-of-the-art fruit and vegetable-importing facility – the result of £25 million in investment.
  • Specialised warehousing and temperature-controlled pack house – so produce arrives at its destination in perfect shape.
  • Unique IT system developed by the Port – allowing clients to track products in real time as they move through the supply chain.
  • One-stop turnkey operation delivering not just stevedoring but also delivery, packaging and onward transport – an unrivalled service.
  • 60 forklifts on site, new cranes and new warehouses in 2012 – investment to match shippers’ high expectations.
  • Quay water depth of more than 9.5 metres below chart datum for flexible berthing regardless of tides – eliminating deviations to offload excess weight.
  • Customs Agency and Ship Agency – provided if required.

Cargo handling is by Mainland Market Deliveries. MMD (Shipping Services) Ltd operates from the commercial wharves at Flathouse Quay (190 metres) and Albert Johnson Quay (285 metres).
