The Port of Immingham is the UK’s largest port by tonnage, handling around 46 million tonnes of cargo every year. Together with ABP’s other ports on the Humber at Grimsby, Hull and Goole, Immingham is part of the UK’s leading port complex, an unparalleled gateway for the trade connecting businesses across the UK, Europe, and beyond. The port is a critical part of the supply chain for sustainable electricity generation and other energy production, helping power the nation and helping to cement the Humber as ‘the UK’s Energy Estuary’.
The Port of Immingham, on the UK’s busiest trading estuary, connects businesses across the UK and the world. The port is a leader in handling a wide range of cargo, including Ro-Ro, containers (Lo-Lo), dry bulks and liquid bulks serving key sectors across the economy.
As a critical link in the supply chains of businesses throughout Britain, the Port of Immingham supports 10,500 jobs nationally and contributes over £700 million to the economy every year.
Continued investment by ABP has enabled Immingham to maintain its position in the premier league of ports, delivering the latest state-of-the-art infrastructure, equipment, systems and facilities.
The Port of Immingham has a team dedicated to safely delivering the highest standards of customer service, ready to work in partnership to help our customers’ businesses to grow.
Every year ABP is proud to sponsor the Humber Coastal Half Marathon. Around 2,500 runners from around the country take part in the scenic run to raise money for local good causes. The port is also heavily engaged in supporting a range of other charities.
The Port of Immingham is less than 24 hours from a European market of 170 million people. The port's modern rail infrastructure handles more than 240 rail freight movements a week. The port benefits from congestion-free, high-speed road links - from the M180 through to the M18 and M1 - which will enable UK-wide cargo distribution from a location strategically close to the UK's industrial heartland. Humberside International Airport is a 20-minute drive from the port and has a helicopter base to service the offshore industries.
