CRO Ports Killingholme Terminal is a busy operational port and covers 107 hectares of freehold port development. It comprises 6 lock free ro-ro berths, significant rail infrastructure for the handling and storage of vehicles and high and heavy equipment, such as construction and agricultural machinery.

sewerage systems, stabilised foundation, macadam/concrete paving as well as the Installation of lampposts and associated infrastructure and the construction of gates, fencing and retaining walls.
