Port Facilities

The Port of Poole is home to state-of-the-art facilities designed to make everything run as smoothly as possible. Every day, we have RORO freight ferries departing courtesy of Brittany Ferries. Our facilities can also accommodate ferries for loading and offloading. And with a fleet of Terberg Tugmasters, we can move any unaccompanied trailers up to 30 tonnes! There are also two self-weighing weighbridges – one for import, and one for export. If you require assistance or further information, our shipping agents will be more than happy to help.

Poole Harbour

Poole Harbour is one of the world’s largest natural harbours, falling only just behind the harbour in Sydney which holds the top spot. Thanks to its convenient location in the heart of the South of England, it’s within striking distance of many tourist spots, shops, commercial and industrial estates, and more. This makes it an ideal location for handling imports and exports as goods can be shipped to recipients a lot faster. And while you’re here, you’ll also get to take in some of the wondrous sites of this gorgeous natural locale.

So, if you’d like to speak to one of our shipping agents concerning your logistical requirements, call Poole Harbour Commissioners today on +44 (0)1202 440200.
