Located in Wales' largest fishing Docks with spaces and facilities, including chill storage, ideally suited to the fishing and food processing industries.
Pembroke Port has a range of onsite buildings suitable for storage and warehousing. It is a deep-water port ideally equipped for loose, baled, palletised and heavy lift cargo. The buildings have a range of access options and the Port team can co-ordinate the quayside to storage transportation. We also work closely with specialist operators when additional kit is needed to help with heavy lift projects.
Pembroke Port also acts as a supply port for industries working offshore. Its proximity to the Irish Sea and Bristol Channel shipping lanes and a doorstep high-skill engineering and marine supply chain also make it a convenient vessel layover site accommodating planned and emergency stays as needed.

On 1st January 2021 the EU transition period ended. This means all goods passing to and from the EU require a Customs declaration and are subject to border controls. Pembroke Dock Ferry Terminal (PDFT) worked closely with partner agencies to facilitate the changes that occurred. Changes that have been made include:
A Border Control Post to enable UK Border Force to carry out additional physical checks on goods.
- An area for a range of Office of Transit functions - including CTC, Office of Departure, Office of Destination (facilitated by Descartes Inventory System) and CITES.
We are working with Welsh Government preparing for the checks coming on line throughout 2024 for animal and plant derived products via an onsite facility.
We also offer secure overnight parking for HGVs through our SNAP account and Travis depots.
