The Humber has powered the UK economy for decades, bringing everything from food to freight, coal to cars, passengers to petroleum and is home to the UK’s busiest port complex. Not only does it face Northern Europe, but its strategic position at the centre of the UK - 200 miles from London, Edinburgh and Rotterdam, also makes it an important hub for trade and industry.

Today, the Humber’s location and ports connectivity continues to drive some serious investments and innovation. Coined as ‘The Energy Estuary’, it now boasts a wide range of knowledge economy sectors from renewables and bio-mass energy to engineering, chemicals, food processing and digital industries - taking raw materials and inventing products and services used around the world 24-7.
