The Port of Tyne has five commercial Business Areas: Conventional and Bulk Cargoes, Car Terminals, Cruise and Ferry, Logistics, and Estates.

The Conventional and Bulk Business Area has benefitted from infrastructure development and major river dredging so that the main Riverside Quays can now handle 86% of the world's largest cargo ships.

The Logistics Business Area offers customers an integrated package of container handling, warehousing and distribution. Goods handled through the container terminal include retail products, parts for manufacturing and almost a third of the UK's tea imports.

The Port's Estates business manages a growing portfolio of commercial properties and land holdings with over 100 business tenants and also offers property development opportunities. There is a cluster of logistics, warehousing and haulage firms along the roads either side of the Tyne into Newcatle offering a wide variety of warehousing and storage solutions. Many offer pallet storage, order fulfilment, pick and pack, distribution and other supply chain services.
