Our two container terminals with their scheduled services provide extensive connectivity, efficient container handling and bring containers closer to UK markets
Bristol is the UK's most centrally located container port, located on England's west coast and has two container terminals. In providing marine services, stevedoring and quayside operations, we offer a complete package to both deep-sea and short-sea container operators using our permanently employed workforce.
The Bristol Port Company handles containers at both the Portbury and Avonmouth terminals. Portbury Container Terminal (details below) handles larger vessels including the weekly MSC feeder from Antwerp. The Avonmouth Container Terminal (details below) serves smaller vessels with rapid turnaroud time for smaller volumes.
The consented Deep Sea Container Terminal will add a further 1.5m TEU. With berthing pockets dredged to 18 metres the new terminal will provide a key gateway for container ships - including the new generation of Ultra Large Container Ships - to access UK markets. We are ready to build as soon as market conditions are right.
