Hartlepool has always been a major seaport and a great industrial ship building town.

The Port of Hartlepool has maintained its proud maritime and fishing heritage, so it’s fitting that the docks and surrounding estate, covering more than 300 acres, continue to develop and contribute to the local and national economy.

The port is on the North East coast of England, just three miles away from Teesport, and is at the heart of Hartlepool’s local economy, with bulk cargo facilities alongside the oil & gas sectors and the renewable offshore wind energy market.

With excellent transport links and lock free access to the North Sea we’re well positioned for all your multipurpose logistics and supply chain facilities, not only by sea, but also by land and air.

The Port of Hartlepool has two primary routes, the A179 and the A689 both linked to the A19 dual carriageway and it’s the main arterial route for the A1 (M) North and South. The Port is direct rail freight linked into the UK network offering you railway flexibility too.

Both Durham Tees Valley and Newcastle International Airports are located within a short distance.
