Port Entry.

Port Entry is a joint point of entry to the port area. One joint ID check for all cargo terminals makes life easier for drivers and provides a clear route into the port for better reception and an efficient traffic flow.

HGV drivers are also assisted by recessed space detectors on the 29 HGV parking bays for a parking guidance system together with a sign that shows where drivers should go to find a vacant space.
