UK’s Four Northern Ports Form New Partnership

England’s four main northern ports, Liverpool, Hull, Teesport and Tyne, have agreed a new partnership to create jobs, boost exports and prosperity across the North of England.

The association’s creation is a recommendation in IPPR North’s Northern Ports report, which highlighted the domination of southern ports and the problems this creates in transporting imports and exports across the UK.

Around 60 percent of freight destined for the North of the country is delivered to southern ports.

By bringing the four ports, ran by Peel Ports, ABP, PD Ports and Port of Tyne, together, the North can act as a gateway to the world, connecting Atlantic shipping in Liverpool in the west to the east’s links with the continent, according to PD Ports.

The four ports yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding to take forward the commitment.

“In a sign the Northern Powerhouse agenda marches forward, a new Northern Ports Association will unite northern ports and make importing and exporting much easier than today,” PD Ports said.
