The port of Flixborough is one of the river wharves on the Trent. It’s main focus is on handling steel and bulk cargos, and can accommodate vessels up to a maximum of 100m with a sailing draft of up to 5.5m on Spring Tides. Overhead gantry cranes are available to lift up to 35 tonnes and a mobile crawler crane for general grab or hook work.

Given the port’s on-site rail terminal that includes a dedicated rail crew and 2 locomotives, coupled with the nearby motorway network, Flixborough offers exceptional transport links to and from the Midlands, Yorkshire and the North West.
