the British Ports Association
The British Ports Association is the national membership body for ports in the UK.
We represent the interests of operators that handle 86% of all UK port traffic, to Westminster and devolved Governments, and other national and international bodies.
We are an inclusive and progressive association, open to all and committed to the fair treatment of ports up and down the country.
As our membership comprises many ports, terminal operators and port facilities, all of varying size, location and nature, the Association is able to draw upon a wide range of experience and knowledge to represent its members’ interests.
We also have a strong network of Associate Members who add much to the value of membership.
