Aberdeen Harbour is a Trust Port, focussing on the present, but also with a strong vision of the future.
"Our Vision is to be a major, commercially successful and sustainable Trust Port, integral to the North East of Scotland’s transport infrastructure and providing an increasingly significant contribution to its economic growth."
A Trust Port is an independent statutory body, created by an Act of Parliament. As such, it is not controlled by a local authority, nor is it a private business. Instead, it is run by an independent board, for the benefit of its stakeholders, and governed by its own local legislation.Read More
