The Essex Chambers invites you to join us for a Networking Tour of the Port of Tilbury.
The Port of Tilbury is already recognised as one of the UK’s most multipurpose, flexible and successful ports in the UK, but is hoping to soon be recognised for the development of a new piece of national infrastructure, Tilbury2.
Tilbury2 is the expansion of the Port of Tilbury into a 152-site next door to the port. Tilbury2, to be built on former Tilbury Power Station land, is well on its way. This development, in February of this year, was granted planning consent under a development consent order (DCO) from the Secretary of State.
You will get an insight into Tilbury's development and how Port of Tilbury continue to create and grow dynamic supply chain solutions within the existing port boundaries before enjoying a tour of the facilities. This will be followed by a chance to build your contacts by networking with fellow businesses both small and large.
