They are the custodians of the tidal Thames
As a trust port, the Port of London Authority has no shareholders and operates for the benefit of customers and stakeholders now and in the future. Their operations cover 95 miles of the River Thames, from Teddington to the North Sea. They work to keep commercial and leisure users safe, protect and enhance the environment, and promote the use of the river for trade and travel.
They are the UK’s largest port, handling more than 45 million tonnes of cargo each year, employing more than 40,000 people and contributing over £3 billion to the economy annually.
