North East and Tees Valley Water Freight Event


Held on Wednesday 4th October 2017, National Museum of the Royal Navy, Hartlepool

The North East Freight Partnership, North East Combined Authority and Tees Valley Combined Authority recognise the vital role that our ports and rivers play in moving goods into and out of the region. Transport for the North is projecting significant growth in the volume of goods handled at our major ports, demonstrating that the region’s seafaring tradition is alive and well.

It is therefore important that those responsible for water freight in the region work together to ensure that we maximise our potential and exploit associated opportunities.

To support this endeavour, we have arranged this high profile event to bring together key stakeholders to discuss water freight in the North East and Tees Valley.
