The Port of Tyne is one of the UK's largest Trust Ports, an independent statutory body governed by its own, unique, local legislation and controlled by an independent board.

There are no shareholders or owners. Any surplus is ploughed back into the Port for the benefit of the stakeholders of the trust. The stakeholders are all those using the port, employees of the port and its users and all those individuals, organisations and groups having an interest in the operation of the Port.

We recognise that we play an important role in the economic, environmental and regional identity of the North East and we are committed to creating a vibrant, sustainable Port of Tyne for the benefit of our stakeholders and the region. We do this by operating in a commercially sound, socially supportive and environmentally sustainable manner.
