Cargo

Over 1.5 million tonnes of bulk cargo pass through the Port of Thyboron each year

Commercial port for reliable and efficient cargo handling

The Port of Thyboron has an ideal location on the Danish North Sea coast, with ample space for temporary cargo storage, a short distance by road to production companies in Denmark, safe navigation in any weather conditions, deep draught, and easy access to an uncongested road network. As a result, more than 1.5 million tonnes of cargo are handled by the port every year, and this volume is steadily increasing. Three categories of cargo are seeing a lot of activity at the port today.

The types of cargo handled at the Port of Thyboron vary widely and include marine rubble, sand and gravel for the concrete industry, transformers and offshore wind turbine components for energy companies, biomass, seed, lime and fertilizer for agriculture, oil for bunkering vessels, frozen fish off-cuts for feed production, stone chippings for asphalt production, chemicals in tankers and much more.

Reliable cargo transport via the North Sea

The Port of Thyboron is a strategic choice for cargo to and from Danish production facilities. With a geographical location right beside the North Sea, all-weather navigation due to its unique east-facing harbour entrance and easy access from quays to the highway, the port guarantees easy and reliable cargo handling.

Numerous logistics possibilities

At a time when the environment is a key factor and new solutions are needed for transport, logistics and energy, good logistical opportunities can be crucial. The Port of Thyboron supports this trend.

New port expansion for cargo activities

Quayside land is crucial to logistics optimisation. 150,000 square metres of new quayside land for cargo activities will be established during 2022. This imminent port expansion will mean great opportunities for expanding current activities or establishing a new logistics company at the Port of Thyboron.

No more than 500 metres from quay to main road

The Port of Thyboron is being expanded away from the town centre, parallel to the main road. The maximum distance from the quay to the main road is therefore 500 metres, no matter where in the port the ships berth, and trucks do not have to pass through a busy town centre. Combined with navigation in any weather conditions, this is a key parameter for reliable transport logistics.
