For UK ports, today is a time of endeavoring to regain the confidence of many port users. During the past winter localized strikes in some ports and the nationwide road haulage strike which affected all ports did much to deter cargo away from the UK to other European ports. To achieve this goal of regenerated confidence one of the main arguments UK ports employ is that they are making substantial investments in both port infrastructure and equipment in order to improve service levels. On investigation, as the activities of the ports discussed reveal, there appears to be a good deal of substance to this argument.
