Our heritage can be traced back to 1760.
Over the past 260 years cargoes, vessel types and land uses have all changed considerably with the Port continually reinventing itself. Today we operate at the heart of the local community. Our commercial cargoes range from timber, steel, oil, grain and aggregates. Bustling marinas are home to local leisure boat users. Our fishing vessels have made us top UK Port for scallop landings for 5 years running. A thriving commercial property portfolio has enabled over 150 small and medium sized businesses to join our Port community.
Since our inception, Shoreham Port has been operating as a Trust Port. Our purpose to this day remains to shape and maintain the Port for the benefit of all stakeholders. The surpluses we make are reinvested in the Port to benefit everyone, creating jobs and opportunities. Learn more about Trust Ports in our guide, What Are Trust Ports?
In 2021 our vision for the Port remains consistent, we want to play our part in leading the regional economy to a sustainable future, leaving things better than we found them for future generations. We are proud to have been awarded EcoPort status for 7 years running. We have over 10,000 solar panels across the Port and on a windy day Spinny and Gusty, our two onshore turbines generate enough power for the whole Port. We work in harmony with nature and continually assess our environmental impact to protect our communties for generations to come.
