New Port of London Handbook 2003

New Port of London Handbook

The 2003 edition of the Port of London Handbook has been published by the Port of London Authority (PLA), following one of the most successful years of new traffic for the Port in recent years.

As the "flagship" publication for the Port and used world-wide to promote the diverse range of facilities and marine terminals that make up the Port of London, the Handbook contains essential information for people involved in importing and exporting goods into or out of the UK and others in transport, logistics and related fields.

The full-colour A4 book runs to 128 pages and is available free. It includes:

  • details of the different terminals in the Port of London
  • maps of the Thames and Estuary, showing the location of terminals and their juxtaposition to the main UK markets
  • cargo and shipping statistics
  • details of shipping companies using the Port of London
  • information on facilities and services

Geoff Adam, Head of Marketing at the Port of London said:

"Over the years our Handbook has become an essential part of marketing the Port of London, helping existing and potential customers to move cargo into the UK’s largest market of London and south-east England. With over 70 operational terminals, the Port can handle every type of cargo on virtually any type of vessel."
