New terminal at UK Humber Port of Immingham

A new £100m deal has been struck, which will see Stena move its Immingham freight operations to a brand-new terminal.

Stena Line and ABP are to develop a new terminal at the UK Humber port of Immingham

Stena Line and Associated British Ports (ABP) have agreed to develop a new terminal at Immingham, in a location adjacent to the Outer Harbour.

“It’s been a positive story in the North Sea, particularly the Humber, where freight hit record levels last year – particularly boosted by a 28% rise in unaccompanied freight year on year.”

Simon Palmer, Stena spokesperson

A Boost for the North

The new terminal ties in with the plan to balance the economies of the North and south of England.

“There are some good trends the government is supporting for routes on the North Sea, which feeds into its ‘levelling-up’ agenda,”

Simon Palmer, Stena spokesperson

The deal for a new terminal follows the relocation of Stena’s Rotterdam freight service to Immingham this year. It also reinforces Stena’s Belfast-Birkenhead route. In addition, the planned rail developments to link the Humber and Mersea regions suggest that trading to and across the North of England is about to take an upward turn.

“Stena Line is pledging a significant long-term commitment that will bring a substantial boost to the region’s economy, in terms of jobs and revenue.”

Niclas Martensson, CEO

This investment in new infrastructure is putting Humber on the map, making it the go-to place for trading links between the Midlands and the North of England.
