Forth Ports is a dynamic UK-based multimodal ports owner and operator. Our ports are strategically positioned and serve as logistical gateways across the UK. We offer businesses a wide range of diverse, port-related services, and help connect the UK with Europe and the rest of the world.
The Forth Ports Group consists of eight strategically positioned ports across the UK. Our ports facilitate the import and export of raw materials and finished products, operate as logistical bases for major construction projects across the country, and are considered hubs for key established and emerging industries.
The Port of Tilbury is the largest port within our group. It is the only UK port that truly services both deep sea and short sea customers via the London Container terminal. With an estate in excess of 1,000 acres, the Port of Tilbury provides a key role in supporting UK supply chains for a diverse range of sectors, supporting customers to deliver their goods into the London and South East market.
Forth Ports is the largest port group in Scotland, operating seven strategically located ports in Leith, Grangemouth, Rosyth, Dundee and three Ports along the Fife coast (Methil, Burntisland and Kirkaldy), acting as major industry hubs and providing fast and efficient access to 70% of the Scottish population.
Forth Ports are committed to reducing its own carbon footprint as well as its customers and this is reflected in the Port of Leith which has become the first mainland commercial Port on Scotland to provide shore power connection.
In addition to the commercial ports we also provide an important service as the statutory harbour authority for the Firth of Forth and the River Tay. Our marine department (FTNS) manages and operates an area of 280 square miles of navigable waters, including two specialised marine terminals for oil and gas exports. The department delivers a consistent high level of service in ships handling, pilotage, navigation, conservancy and towage.
