London Thamesport Customs Clearance
London Thamesport, a member of the Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) Group, is a modern, automated container port located at the mouth of the River Medway in the Thames estuary. Situated only 35 miles from the City of London and 55 miles from the Channel Tunnel, the port is accessed via the excellent M2 motorway. London Thamesport is one of only three UK deep-water ports capable of handling super post-panamax container vessels.
London Thamesport has a depth of 15 metres of water alongside, and the 655 metres of quay provides 2 operational berths equipped with 8 ship-to-shore gantry cranes, allowing high intensity operations and excellent operational performance.
Extensive warehousing is available, and the port is also able to handle break-bulk, heavy-lift and project cargoes, as well as offering a range of port-centric logistics solutions.
