Situated on the UK East Coast, 10 nautical miles from Harwich and Felixstowe, Mistley provides the ideal location for short sea, transhipment and coastal cargoes, with excellent links to Northern Europe, The Baltic and Scandinavia, and the Mediterranean, as well as serving all the UK manufacturing centres.
The port regularly handles 150 -200,000 tonnes of cargo per annum in coaster sized vessels, with further cargoes arriving in containers through the local container ports of Felixstowe as well as from Tilbury and London Gateway.
The port is a NAABSA facility but regularly accepts 3,800 dwt vessels, as well as smaller vessels trading coast wise and across the North Sea.
With a passage time from main North Europe ports to Mistley of 14 hours, Mistley makes the ideal location to transport goods competitively and efficiently.
The Port of Mistley is independent and privately owned and managed by T W Logistics Ltd.
The port has a long tradition in handling grain and malt for the brewing industry, but over the years has continued to diversify and now handles a wide range of dry bulks, packed, bagged and bundled goods including fertilisers, stone & aggregates, industrial minerals, glass & other recyclables, bricks & blocks, biomass, light steel products, metals, and various other break bulk and general cargoes.
We pride ourselves in taking the time to develop good relationships with cargo owners, shippers, manufacturers, producers, local ships agents, chartering companies and ship owners to ensure that the Port continues to provide an excellent level of service.
