Humber Freeport will accelerate the region as a world-leading hub for renewable energy, clean growth, digital innovation and advanced manufacturing.
The Humber is centred around the UK’s busiest port complex. The four major ports of Hull, Goole, Immingham and Grimsby handle around 17 per cent of the nation’s trade, and play a vital strategic role for the UK as a global trade gateway.
Freeport status will inject £650m of investment into the Humber, providing a catalyst for future investment, job growth, regeneration, decarbonisation and innovation.
With global investment opportunities in sectors including green energy, chemicals, logistics, advanced manufacturing and technology, Humber Freeport will combine the public and private sectors to drive economic transformation.
