Import Services and Southampton: Strategic Location

Strategic Location

The strategic location on the UK’s south coast makes Southampton Container Port, the ideal first port of call for container ships serving the Far East Northern to European trades. The terminal also offers significant protection from the elements, by virtue of the geographical location, naturally sheltered from prevailing winds. Thanks to the Isle of Wight, even in the toughest weather conditions Southampton maintains a great operational track record. Southampton port also it benefits from a unique double tide which provides an exceptionally wide tidal window for access by the World’s largest container ships.
