The Port Of Felixstowe

Published on 14 Mar 2018


Felixstowe is the UK’s largest and busiest container port handling 42% of all UK container trade. It’s in an ideal position on the Suffolk coast for ships on the main European lanes between Hamburg and Le Havre. It also has some of the deepest water of any European port that allows it to berth the largest container vessels, sometimes known as ‘megaships.’ Around 30 shipping lines operate from Felixstowe, delivering to 400 ports across the world. The port processes more than 4m containers a year from around 3,000 ships. The port says it’s environmentally friendly as the megaships that Felixstowe handles have a lower carbon footprint than other cargo vessels. To learn more about Felixstowe Docks click here:
