Situated on the River Tay just 30 miles from the North Sea in central Scotland, Perth Harbour benefits from the area's network of motorways, dual carriageways and national rail network.
Perth Harbour accepts coastal and dry bulk ships up to 90 metres in length, carrying up to 2500 tonnes from Europe, the Baltic or Scandinavia.
Property firm Bidwells, which is marketing the harbour on behalf of the local authority, has has issued a request for expressions of interest for the river port transaction.
Graeme Duncan, head of commercial property at Bidwells, stated:
Perth Harbour is unique in the area because of its location - moving away from the large coastal ports such as Aberdeen and Dundee brings costs down while keeping the advantages of proximity to the North Sea and excellent rail and road transport links. The harbour would make the ideal investment for a company looking for a logistics hub in the centre of Scotland.
