A fascinating visit to ABP Port of Southampton as guest of Port Director Alastair Welch. Southampton is the UK’s number one vehicle handling port, Europe’s leading turnaround cruise port and the UK’s most productive container port. Operated by DP World Southampton, the terminal is home to the new 500m deepwater quay SCT5, which was purpose built to handle the biggest ships in the world.
ABP Southampton handles around 14 million tonnes of cargo each year
The port supports 15,000 jobs and contributes around £1 billion to the UK economy.
