The Port of Plymouth is home to Brittany Ferries services to France and Spain.  The A38 Devon Expressway links Plymouth to the M5 at Exeter and for passengers, Plymouth's central railway station is less than a mile from the port entrance. 

The port's geographical advantages ensure it is well placed to continue to serve in particular European Continental trade and tourist routes.
