Port of Tilbury (London)

The Port of Tilbury, the UK’s 3rd largest port, and London’s closest port, was opened over 130 years ago. Today it handles 16 million tonnes of cargo per annum, approximately 36% of the entire volume that enters the River Thames each year.

As the largest port within the Forth Ports Group, the Port of Tilbury generates over 50% of all group turnover, employing approximately 700 employees while contributing £394 million to the UK economy.

In 2012 the Port of Tilbury launched a £1bn investment programme leading up to 2020.  This investment has seen developments including a 152-acre ‘Tilbury2’ port extension, and a 70-acre distribution park featuring the largest warehouse in Europe, at over 2 million square feet of storage space, now operated by Amazon UK.

Having doubled the size of its business in the past ten years, the Port of Tilbury is now projected to double cargo volume across the quay to 32 million tonnes per annum and triple direct port-related employment from approximately 4,000 to over 12,000, in the next 10-15 years.  This growth is being delivered by both the port and its customers through the development of Tilbury.
