Who We Are

Forth Ports is a resilient and dynamic company, focused on its core ports business. Through our ports, we encourage investment into the Scottish and South East UK economies. 50% of Scotland's GDP goes through our ports and estuaries, where we support key industries such as renewables, oil and gas, and the food and drinks industry.

Tilbury is London's major port and the UK's greenest port. It is the only UK port truly servicing both deep sea and short sea customers via the London Container Terminal. With vast trading links and extensive warehousing storage and distribution complex, Tilbury works with some of the biggest brands in the world.

On a regular basis, we deal with both multi-national companies and local business – we truly cover the global and the local.

Our overall strategy of investing in and devising efficient supply chain solutions for our customers sees us responding quickly and innovatively to a diverse range of customer needs. We are also pleased that this results in lower carbon for the economy.

Forth Ports employs around 1160 staff at its ports across the UK, carrying out a range of duties from straddle carrier operators to logistics managers, and from harbour masters to community liaison staff.

Health and safety on the ports is a core value and every single employee and visitor to the port understands fully the importance we place on this.
