To meet their needs Associated British Ports, as the port and harbour authority, has invested £100 million and built a new 500 metre berth which is capable of handling the world’s largest container ships. The project also includes widening and deepening the main access channel to the container terminal.

More space and more depth, Southampton offers:

  • 1.87km of deepwater quay, with up to 16 metres depth alongside.
  • Berthing for vessels over 400 metres in length.
  • 16 quayside gantry cranes with super post panamax capacity.
  • All backed up by a fleet of flexible straddle carriers.
