Thames Europort is a Roll-on/roll-off port facility at Stone, and close to Dartford. The facility is situated on the southern side of the River Thames. The port is used solely for freight traffic, both trailer and container based.
There is a large pontoon-type berth which can accommodate two ships for simultaneous loading and discharging. The terminal can accommodate vessels up to 236 metres (774 ft) in length, 32.2 metres (106 ft) beam and 11.5 metres (38 ft) draft.
There are lots of types of warehouses in the area: a number of third party (3PL) and specialist logistics companies have shed along the A282 either side of the QE II bridge for palletised goods. There is some outdoor storage available nearby and some smaller warehouses to rent, although it is London so rental prices are high.
