In cooperation with the UK Government the British Ports Association (BPA) has compiled a compendium of information for all UK ports in relation to COVID-19. The ports industry undertakes a vital role in the UK economy, facilitating trade, fuel, energy, fishing, recreation and tourism. All tiers of Government and the industry are committed to UK ports staying open to help sustain the country during this challenging time.

The BPA is focussed on supporting the ports industry during this unprecedented time. As well as our ongoing discussions with all levels of Government about the response and developing best practice amongst our members, we have developed a Ports Coronavirus Hub to offer guidance and advice for the UK ports sector.

The Hub will be updated regularly with Government advice, and information from our members and external organisations, so do keep an eye on it.

The BPA represents 86% of the ports by trade volume in the UK and our members manage around 400 ports, harbours and terminals. However this hub is very much open to all, for further information or if you have any queries please contact [email protected].

If you are a member of the BPA and have not subscribed to receive our regular circulars giving updates on the coronavirus pandemic, please email [email protected] to be added to the distribution list.
