What are the top 5 busiest UK shipping ports? The United Kingdom is home to some of the busiest shipping ports in the world.
The port of Southampton has a long and fascinating history. Located on the south coast of England, the port has been a major gateway for trade and commerce in the region since Roman times. It is well known for its role in WWII as a troop embarkation point, but it also played an important role in developing Britain’s shipping industry over the centuries.
Felixstowe is one of Europe’s most important ports—handling millions tonnes worth of cargo every year and providing employment opportunities for thousands upon thousands of people living in Suffolk.
With its new rail links for container transport to both Scotland and South Yorkshire being invested in – the potential for northern businesses to choose Teesport as their centre of operations for freight forwarding has never been bigger. Finally, there can be more choice for importing and exporting goods to and from the North of England than just the Humber and Liverpool Ports with a heightened and vibrant Teesport taking shape!
A freight forwarder, forwarder, or forwarding agent, is a person or company that organises shipments for individuals or corporations to get goods from the manufacturer or producer to a market, customer or final point of distribution.
