Seatruck Precision Arriving at Heysham Port

Heysham Port - 3 Things You Need to Know

November 10, 2022

In 2021, Heysham achieved a record-high, handling nearly 5 million tonnes of freight in just a year.

Why do so many businesses choose to ship their goods through Heysham?

Let’s find out.

  1. Location, location, location!

Heysham is well-positioned to serve as a vital hub offering direct links to the Irish Republic, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, and the UK.

The port also has strong connections to major road networks throughout the North West and the rest of the UK. Due to its strategic location, Heysham is able to handle freight from all over the nation, cutting down on travel distances and transit times. 

  1. More than ‘just’ a port.

Heysham Port can provide end-to-end solutions for your cargo, whether that be reliable warehousing and storage, access to multimodal road and rail services, or RoRo shipping.

It is no surprise, then, that Heysham Port should be the ideal gateway to the Irish Sea and beyond. If you are looking to transport goods between the UK and Ireland or the Isle of Man, Heysham is the ideal place to start.

  1. Ferry transport with the best operators.

Did you know that up to 71% of all Irish Sea ferry freight currently travels unaccompanied?

This is with good reason, as unaccompanied trailers give companies the ability to organise their activities more efficiently.

The good news? There happens to be an Irish Sea ferry company that is committed to assisting you in doing exactly that. 

At Seatruck, helping you transport your goods conveniently and safely is our number one priority.  As a freight ferry operator focused solely on the Irish Sea, we can move up to 350,000 unaccompanied trailers annually, including everything from tanks, tippers, and flats to refrigerated and hazardous units. In fact, this is our primary business.

(You can even monitor your unaccompanied trailers through your MySeatruck app!)

To seamlessly transport your goods unaccompanied from Heysham & across the Irish Sea, get in touch with us today.
