• Welcome to the Port of Tilbury

Tilbury’s position on the Thames provides a major geographical advantage for transport to and out of London and the South-East. The Port is London's major gateway, handling significant levels of diverse cargo including the importation of paper, containers, grain, and various bulk handling facilities, all of which are handled both in dock and on river facilities.   A significant distribution centre, covering over 850 acres Tilbury is well positioned to access the M25 orbital motorway and the rest of the UK's national motorway network. In addition, there are direct rail connections within the Port, with access to the whole of the UK.
