MHEA organises regular site visits for members with all arrangements made by the association. The site visits are free, with overnight accommodation and meals payable where required.

In recent years we have visited Bristol Port, Peel Port, Glensanda Quarry, Cliff Hill Quarry and JCB. All these events were fully booked very quickly and provided members with a great insight into the needs and challenges of a variety of customers.

To read more about each visit, follow the links below:

2019 – Tilbury Docks 

The Port of Tilbury (London) is the largest of eight ports owned by Forth Ports. As London’s major port it is also the largest multi-modal port in the South East, and 3rd largest port in the UK. The port has an annual throughput of 16 million tonnes per annum and this is estimated to value around £8.7 billion; this makes it the largest port on the Thames.
