The new £15M multi-storey facility will be built in the Eastern Dock and will provide storage for a further 3,000 vehicles. This investment will continue to strengthen the port’s position as a global hub for automotive and is expected to be completed in 2019.

The Port of Southampton is the UK’s hub for automotive, with 11 lines undertaking 110 calls to 52 ports in 40 countries every month.
