History of the port

The Port of Tyne plays an important role in regional and international trade. It used to be central to the export of coal, but today it specializes in the export of cars and passenger traffic. The history of the port dates back to Roman times. In the Middle Ages, it was an important transshipment point for wool, coal and other goods. The Port of Tyne as we know it today developed from the 19th century with the establishment of the Tyne Improvement Commission, which was instrumental in deepening the river and building quays and docks.
