Diverse, flexible, efficient: Harwich International Port continues to attract new business, while maintaining its traditional strengths as one of the UK's leading passenger and freight ferry terminals.
Located in the fast-growing Haven Gateway sub-region, on the east coast of England, customers benefit from the undoubted advantage of lock-free, fast access to the North Sea and European ports.
The Port is long established as a natural gateway to Europe.
Being a multi-disciplined port, the focus is very much on providing a flexible, dedicated workforce able to meet the needs of all customers. This culture is reflected in a commitment to high-quality training for all port staff, and is evident by the creation of a National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ) scheme.
Harwich International Port is fully compliant with the latest quality accreditation ISO 9001:2000 and is a holder of the British Safety Council's Five Star Award.
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Port works in partnership with its customers to ensure that they consistently receive the quality of service they expect. A steady stream of investments over the past decade has created modern facilities across all of the different businesses served, from cruise and ro-ro, to dry and liquid bulks.
The Port has benefited from significant investment since joining Hutchison Ports (UK) Ltd, part of the Hutchison Port Holdings Group (HPH), the world's largest independent port owner and operator, in 1998.
Harwich International Port is continually looking at ways to offer additional services and improved facilities for existing and new port users. This commitment to further growth and investment will lead to significant expansion in the coming years.
