Hull City Council work with Humber Freeport on the development of the Freeport Tax and custom sites for the area.

The Humber is perfectly positioned to create a low carbon roadmap for the rest of the UK and Europe. With significant investment in decarbonisation projects spanning hydrogen energy, carbon capture, storage and usage and solar power, the Humber proudly carries the title of the UK’s ‘Energy Estuary.’

Freeport status will enable the Humber to maximise opportunities which arise from the net zero transition, creating highly-skilled jobs and driving investment both regionally and across the UK.

The Humber also has significant strengths, capabilities and assets across a broad spectrum of chemicals manufacturing and processing.

The region has a strong advanced manufacturing base as well as an extensive logistics sector, providing opportunities for the supply chain and distribution.
