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.
