The Port of Tyne has announced its best ever financial results. A massive rise in cargo traffic has meant a rise in turnover by nearly a third to £60m. The success is credited to the success and commitment of the port's employees.
There has also been over £100m of investment in infrastructure at the Port over the last 10 years, including deepening the river, strengthening the Port's quayside berths and developing new cargoes. The deep sea port can now accept the majority of the world's biggest cargo and cruise ships.
