UK Shipping Ports

The UK economy is the seventh largest in the world and domestic UK ports play a vital role in the UK economy.  UK ports are amongst the most competitive and efficient in the world, they handle over 95% of UK imports and exports and in 2008, the value of trade through British ports was around £340 billion.  Although the global recession during 2009 and 2010 has had an impact on the amount of traffic through ports in the UK, domestic ports and shipping still make a sizeable contribution to the UK economy.
