Port Development

The Port of Dover is home to the busiest international 24/7 roll-on roll-off ferry port in Europe.

The Port handles up to 160km of freight in a single day as well as large amounts of tourist traffic through its six ferry berths, multiple assembly parks and custom built infrastructure. The Eastern Docks also accommodates busy general cargo activities whilst the Western Docks accommodates Dover Cruise Terminal, the second busiest cruise port in the UK, and the Marina, all of which is surrounded by historic breakwaters.

Port Development

As part of an £85 million capital investment programme, we completed our Traffic Management Improvement (TMI) project. We have delivered 4km of additional freight holding capacity to help keep traffic moving, enhance operational flexibility and reduce congestion on the external road network. TMI has also provided dynamic capacity for tourist traffic during peak holiday periods. 

Such has been its success that it recently formed the centrepiece for the Port becoming the first maritime partner of Government’s Exporting is Great campaign, supporting UK businesses in exporting to the world.

“The UK is a great trading nation and the Port of Dover’s new facility will provide even more opportunity for British businesses to sell their goods overseas. Up to 17 per cent of the UK’s trade passes through the Port, as UK companies explore new markets in Europe. It’s great to see partners like this working with the Government – through the Exporting is GREAT campaign – to support our businesses and boost exports.” Lord Price, Trade and Investment Minister
