Car trade through the UK port of Grimsby is set to surge as the Secretary of State for Transport approved a proposal to develop two roll on roll off (ro-ro) riverside terminals for the transportation of cars.

The two new terminals will accommodate vessels carrying over 2000 vehicles and the port will see a significant increase in its cargo capacity. The development is the largest project in Grimsby’s recent history.

The news comes after recent consent was granted to the Port of Southampton to upgrade berths to be able to accommodate ultra large container ships calling at the UK in the next few years. These developments mean these two UK ports will continue to serve the UKs increasing demand for imports and exports in years to come.

For more information on the developments and the potential the Port of Grimsby will start to offer importers and exporters over the coming years please contact Mercator Cargo Systems today on 02392 75 65 75 to speak to an experience members of our freight forwarding team today.
