UK south coast Portland Port has frozen customers’ tariffs through to the end of 2021 to support the industry during the pandemic.

‘Portland Port acknowledges the significant challenges faced by all industries during this pandemic, so to help, we have decided to keep our tariff prices the same as last year,’ explained Ian McQuade, commercial general manager, Portland Port.

‘During these extraordinary times, Portland Port wants to try to support its tenants and customers more than ever.’

Activity during the shutdown

Cruise ships at Portland Port have been able to come alongside a berth for maintenance purposes, loading of stores or the offload of waste, or by using the Port’s passenger pontoon for their tenders to enable crew changes and the important transfer of PCR tests to laboratories.
