Grimsby & Immingham

Grimsby and Immingham combine to form the UK's largest port by tonnage, handling up to 55 million tonnes of cargo each year. 

Grimsby, although retaining strong tradition connections to the fishing and food industry, its major focus is on the handling of imported trade cars.  More than 600,000 vehicles are imported through Grimsby each year, and ABP is about to embark on a £25 million investment in the development of the Grimsby River Terminal in order to handle the largest car carriers in operation. 

Although predominantly a bulk port - and the UK's premier energy port, handling oil and petrochemicals, coal, iron ore, and renewable fuels for industry - Immingham is home to DFDS Seaways with its unique network of services connected to Northern Europe and Scandinavia by more than 30 roll-on/roll-off (roro) freight sailings each week to ports ranging from Rotterdam to Gothenburg.  These unitised services complement the range of services which are available from the ABP sister-ports of Hull and Goole in order to give UK importers and exporters unparalleled access to North Europe, Scandinavia, and Baltic markets.

In addition there are 15 lift-on/lift-off (lolo) container shipping services operated by a range of short sea and feeder shipping lines serving primarily the major ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp as well as weekly sailings to Scandinavia and The Baltic.
