COVID-19: Information on the Port of Blyth Group

COVID-19 Response

Port of Blyth, the operating division of Blyth Harbour Commission, its logistics subsiduary Transped and its training arm Port Training Services are constantly evaluating our responses to COVID-19.

As the Port of Blyth is designated as a Category 2 organisation by the Civil Contingencies Act, it will remain open to support the movement of supplies and the production of energy that are both so vital to the country coming through this crisis.

We are taking significant steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 and as always the safety and well being of our staff and anyone working on site is our number one priority.

We are in regular contact with the Department for Transport, the River Blyth Port Health Authority, Northumberland County Council, the British Ports Association and all of our tenants and clients and will continue to follow all official health advice from the Government and Public Health England.

This page will be kept updated to include the latest information on the steps we are taking to remain open:

Port of Blyth continues to operate. The latest guidance for clients and vessels can be found here.

Transped continues to operate. The latest guidance for customers can be found here.

Port Training Services has cancelled all non-essential training but is able to offer, under the strict Government controls, any essential plant skills training to ensure that the vital supply chains of the UK are maintained. The latest guidance for customers can be found here.

Thank you to our staff, tenants and customers, partners and all our stakeholders for your understanding and for supporting the preventative steps being taken by Port of Blyth to limit the spread of the virus.
