The United Kingdom ports industry has been at the forefront of international trade and, therefore, cargo movement since the industrial revolution. Its contribution to the wider economy is still pivotal, handling the majority of the UK's trade. At this point in time, particularly with the government in the process of reviewing the future of its policy for the ports industry through it Ports Policy Review, it is pertinent to assess the forces, which are both driving port development and seeking to restrain unfettered growth. This paper, therefore considers the role of government and how it has shaped, and is continuing to shape, the UK ports industry.
