About Hull

The Port of Hull is one of the UK's leading foreign trading ports and this position is maintained by a constant programme of capital investment in the development of new facilities and services.

The port's position on the north bank of the River Humber also provides a major geographical advantage for transport links in to and out of the UK. As a result, the port has very strong short-sea trade links with Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic, in addition to world-wide deep-sea services. Hull is also well connected to the UK's national motorway network, allowing a market of 40 million people to be reached within a four-hour drive. In addition, there are direct rail connections to the deep-water berths in King George Dock.

Hull is the UKs leading timber port, and is the only passenger port on the Humber estuary, handling some one million passengers a year.
