We handle over 2 million tonnes of bulk liquid each year through terminals at Royal Portbury and Avonmouth Docks.  

At Royal Portbury Dock we handle 25% of total UK imports of aviation fuel which is delivered directly into the pipeline and storage network serving the UK's major airports including Heathrow and Gatwick. 

At Avonmouth Dock we handle in excess of 500,000 tonnes of finished petroleum products annually for the local market using our multi-berth common user system with direct connections to storage tanks near by.  There are common user liquid storage facilities on site operated by the Port's customers and our flexible approach enables us to tailor-make facilities to suit customers' requirements with development land available for new storage facilities.

We support the UK's agricultural sector through the import of liquid products such as fertiliser and molasses.  The European Juice Terminal at Avonmouth handles concentrated orange juice imports from Brazil with bespoke storage on site.
