GENERAL CARGO--U.K.'S POORER PERFORMANCE

This article covers key areas of an unpublished report produced by the National Ports Council in association with the British Ports Association and the General Council of British Shipping, which compares the performances in general cargo handling of selected U.K. and Continental ports. Certain U.K. ports, namely London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Grangemouth, Tees and Hartlepool, Hull and Avonmouth showed lower levels of productivity in most cases than the European ports of Antwerp, Rotterdam, Hamburg and Bremen. Export and import comparisons are made in Tables 4 and 5 respectively; Tables 6 and 7 are comparisions of normalised and basic data, exports and imports, respectively. Table 8 gives the percentage of gang hours lost, Table 9, the percentage of gang hours lost outside port control and Table 10, the percentage of gang hours lost within port control, all for both exports and imports. Table 12 is an average manning comparison.
