The UK's best connected port for cargo and freight

With a convenient location on the UK motorway network, and destinations that cut down on driving in France and Spain, Portsmouth International Port is a popular choice with hauliers, logistics companies and lorry drivers.

A key route to Jersey Royal potatoes from the Channel Islands, salad from Spain, and the freshest produce from France; Portsmouth International Port is also able to handle a wide range of abnormal loads and delicate freight.

We're also experienced handlers of unaccompanied freight, with storage space on-site and stevedoring options available.

Portsmouth is also home to Portico, who operate the international cargo terminal with two conventional berths suitable for sub-Panamax sized vessels.

Important: Information for hauliers

Hauliers heading to the EU can now travel straight to the port for paperwork checks. Those going to France will need a negative Covid-19 test result, taken within 72 hours before you board.

The Operation Transmission triage points remain on standby, in case of any delays. Find out more.
