|Description: In 1978 the Northfleet Hope Container Terminal was completed at Tilbury. Financed by the PLA, OCL and the shipping line ACTA, it incorporated the original Berth 39, but its main feature was a 1,000-feet-long riverside berth built on reclaimed land. It was built to handle reefers - refigerated cargoes. The terminal is now run by Tilbury Container Services and is one the largest reefer container terminals in the northern hemisphere.|
