Around 480 million tonnes of cargo passes through UK ports every year. Britain imports around 50% of its food, and most of that arrives by ship. Dover is one of the world’s busiest passenger ports. The English Channel is the world’s busiest shipping lane. Around 80% of global trade is transported by ship, with English law and London arbitration being the world’s top choice for international dispute resolution.
