The port of Hull is on the North bank of the River Humber which is just 20 miles from the North Sea. It handles over 10 million tonnes each year and covers a total area of 3,000 acres. There are daily crossing on P&O Ferries to both Rotterdam and Zeebrugge, which leave Hull at 9.00 pm and 6.30 pm respectively. This is ideal for the baled material that is exported by the articulated lorry load.
For larger loads that are exported on boats, the port has extensive storage areas and state-of-the-art handling equipment for loading. Shipments of up to 5,000 tonnes can be accommodated
