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.

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

The UK-EU transition period ends on 31 December at 11pm, this means hauliers need to prepare for changes to customs arrangements and travel documentation.

We have a temporary traffic management plan in place to manage freight away from the port, for more details about Op Transmission and what that means for your business click here.

In preparation for the end of the transition businesses who trade with the EU need to make sure they are prepared in advance, visit www.gov.uk/brexit
