Langham Industries took over control of Portland Harbour from the Royal Navy in 1997. Since then the harbour has developed into a thriving commercial port, that handles cruise ships, cargos, bunker vessels and also maintains a strong relationship with the Royal Navy and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.
Under the umbrella of the Portland Port Group are two separate entities:
- Portland Port Ltd
