Northern Regions Stand to Benefit as Ports Activity Accelerates Past Jan 2020

The volume of transits through the UK’s ports of entry since March 1st has tracked consistently at 10-15pts above January 2020 levels, while at the same time delays have returned to ’normal’ levels. This suggests that UK ports are performing more efficiently than at any time during the last year and a quarter, as the time taken to process transits has decreased by up to 15%.

This positive outcome follows an announcement last week that the Mayor of Teeside is poised to create a new ‘super free port” in the wake of Brexit in a bid to bring further prominence and economic activity to the North East of England.
