Taxi to Tilbury Docks


The Port of Tilbury is known as London’s major port. It provides fast, modern distribution for the south east of England and far beyond. A very dynamic and diverse port, is Tilbury.

The Port handles the full range of cargoes and boasts a specialist expertise in handling paper and forest products, containers, grain, bulk commodities, and construction and building materials. Tilbury enjoys a strategic location which makes it a natural point of distribution.

The Port at Tilbury is a multi-modal hub, which covers more than 850 acres and is well positioned for the M25 orbital motorway and the UK’s national motorway network. In addition, there are direct rail connections inside the Port, with access to the whole of the UK and dedicated barge facilities.

Following the acquisition of the Deep Sea container Terminal in 2012, London Container Terminal (LCT) was created providing a unique combination of European Short Sea and Deep Sea services at the same facility.  As the UK’s third largest container terminal, LCT handles over half a million containers per year.

As part of an exciting new development, London Distribution Park (LDP) immediately adjacent to the Port at Tilbury is currently under construction – in a joint venture with the specialist industrial development company, Roxhill. This 70 acre facility will complement the port’s successful distribution capability and further develop Forth Ports’ portcentric strategy, making Tilbury London’s leading logistics and distribution hub.
