The Port of Felixstowe provides the best location in Britain for importing and exporting goods. It is closer than any other port to the main European shipping lanes within the Hamburg - Le Havre range, as well as being closest to the Sunk Pilot Station. This brings several key benefits to our customers:
The world’s largest container vessels can fit anywhere in the port rotation of major services with minimum deviation from the main shipping routes, and at just two hours from the pilot station, our flexibility and speed cannot be matched.
Felixstowe also provides quick and convenient onward distribution of freight within Britain. Located less than 2 hours from London by road or rail, the Port’s proximity to the capital means you gain all the advantages of being close to the UK’s capital while also avoiding its down sides, therefore ensuring:
In combination, the Port of Felixstowe’s proximity to the European shipping lanes and its ease of access to London and the whole UK market enables the Port to offer unparalleled location benefits to all our users.
COSCON has strengthened its UK business over the past few years based upon Felixstowe as its major UK hub port. The Port of Felixstowe has significantly improved its operational productivity and we are delighted now to be calling at Berths 8&9 where our vessels are worked much faster and importantly, allows us to regain timing on our European rotation. Through Felixstowe we have managed to reduce intermodal cost through a greater use of rail.”
