TEES & HARTLEPOOL
PORT USERS ASSOCIATION

The Tees and Hartlepool Port Users’ Association (THPUA) is the region’s lobbying group for the shipping industry. 

It exists to develop and promote the economic, efficient and effective movement of goods through the ports of Tees and Hartlepool in the interest of its members and their clients. 

One of the main objectives of the THPUA is the promotion of the River Tees and its business community in order to generate and maintain cargo flows via the Ports of Tees and Hartlepool. The Association also consults, cooperates and negotiates with PD Teesport and other private and public bodies which influence shipping activities within the ports. 

The THPUA exchanges information and coordinates activities among its 50 members, which are mainly companies and organisations involved in port operations, oil, chemical and steel support and logistics related services.

Collectively, the THPUA members provide a wide cross section of river activities including cargo handling, offshore, ship repair and private wharves, as well as the support services associated with a major port operation.
