The Port of Tyne in North East England is in the running for the ports industry's top accolade, Global Port Operator, in the Lloyds List Global Awards.


Making the shortlist is in itself an enormous achievement and the competition is especially tough as this award looks for global excellence right across the world.

The Port of Tyne is the only UK port in the shortlist and the only UK port to be shortlisted an unprecedented two years running. Others in the shortlist include ATM Terminals (The Netherlands), Krishnapatnam Port Company (India), and Portonave (Brazil).

Andrew Moffat, Port of Tyne Chief Executive Officer, said: "Once again to be shortlisted for the industry's most sought-after award signifies the success the Port has made in recent years.

"This is an incredible achievement, and one that our employees can be proud to be part of. It's their contribution through innovations and driving service quality forward that has led to the record-breaking growth of the business for three successive years. We're delighted to have been shortlisted and to be in the same frame as some of the world's biggest operators for a second year."

The Port of Tyne has achieved three years of record growth and Department for Transport figures have revealed that the Port is officially the UK's fastest growing deep-sea port.

Richard Meade, Lloyd's List Editor, said: "For our panel of judges, who had the difficult task of selecting the shortlist - these finalists represents the best of the best. The judges were impressed by The Port of Tyne's recent successes and felt it was an ideal contender for this award."

The winners will be announced at an awards evening October 1st.
