ABSTRACT
This article presents the contents of the report of the Department of the Environment, Transport, and the Regions of Great Britain on unitized-container and roll-on/roll-off traffic data at ports in the country for 1999. Total freight traffic through the ports decreased due to the ending of sewage dumping at sea. The department estimates that the imports through the ports decreased and that exports increased. Traffic at the major ports increased. Bulk fuels represented 55 percent of all major ports traffic, with crude oil accounting for 186 metric tons, petroleum products for 83.5 metric tons and coal for 22.4 metric tons. Compared to 1998, international sea passenger journeys fell by six percent to 31.4 million, accompanied passenger car traffic fell by two percent to 7.4 million and the number of ship arrivals remained at 155,000.
