The Essex port of Tilbury is to be re-branded as London Container Terminal.  Its new owners will combine the deepsea and shortsea container facilities. As the closest deepsea container terminal to London, it focuses on north-south trades and handles a high volume of reefer cargo, including Australian and New Zealand meat, and butter, cheese and fruit.

The deep sea port showed a modest 2.5% increase in freight throughput last year, handling about 320,000 containers. Tilbury’s shortsea container terminal, saw a 7.5% increase in throughput last year, to 145,000 freight containers.
