Unitised & Logistics


A key international gateway for unitised cargo in and out of northern UK locations – NE & NW England, Yorkshire & Scotland.

Container movements at Port of Blyth are handled through the South Harbour terminal utilising modern mobile container cranes and terminal reachstackers, with immediate access to the main container yard ensuring a highly efficient turn around of vessels and boxes.

As a Port particularly interested in providing added value services, a high proportion of containers passing through the terminal can be processed/devanned through the modern warehouse complexes.

This allows regional, national and international companies to take advantage of a variety of additional services such as re-palletising, conversion, strategic stock holding and just in time deliveries. A fleet of short masted forklift trucks and repalletising/rewrapping turntables ensures this process meets the high demands of our unitised customers.


RoRo pontoons at our South Harbour and Bates terminals cater for RoRo traffic serviced by a fleet of tractor units and mafi trailers. Again the availability of adjacent warehousing services and RoRo parks allows our customers to use the Port as an integrated part of the logistics chain holding or converting stock to minimise the need for facilities at suppliers or receivers premises.


An existing container service runs twice weekly from Moerdijk (Rotterdam area) handling both short sea cargo and deep sea transhipments and is overseen by the Port’s wholly owned, international logistics subsidiary Transped. To enquire about this service or the company’s other offerings such as import/export packing, warehousing, distribution and storage as well as worldwide forwarding, contact Transped via
