In today’s competitive marketplace it’s comforting to know the success of the Port of Howden didn’t come about by chance.
It’s strategically placed, just 50 miles from the mouth of the Humber Estuary, and as such, is one of the most inland-sited ports in whole of the British Isles.
It’s also located on the River Ouse and directly adjacent to the main M62 Trans-pennine motorway which connects Liverpool with Hull via Manchester and Leeds intersecting the M1. This link positions the Port with unrivalled access to the key industrial markets of the North, West and Midland regions of the country. Howden’s exceptional setting provides an ideal hub for the most cost effective ways of distributing cargo.
The Port of Howden also provides comprehensive answers to warehousing and open storage areas covering 36 acres. This infrastructure seamlessly fits with our logistics and supply chain services.
The number of existing importers who are already using Howden to their advantage, delivering in many cases on a ‘just in time’ basis into the industrial heartland of Great Britain means their fast reaction time is proof enough.
Another key strength and advantage of the Port of Howden is the versatility and flexibility it can offer you, with a number of essential facilities and services that go hand in hand:
- four general cargo berths, handling products such as steels, dry bulk cargoes and project cargoes
- 214,000 sq ft of covered warehousing and substantial open storage areas
- specialist bulk handling facilities, including tanker loading and bagging services
- designated forest products and steel terminals within the Port
