ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Institute of Logistics and Transport responded to the invitation of the government of Great Britain to comment on the proposals submitted by the European Commission for access to community port services and for other policy initiatives. The institute confined its response to the broader arguments in favor, or against the thrust of the directive. The institute believes that it was to be expected the present communication from the commission would have specified in some detail the types of situation in which action seemed to be required. However, hardly any evidence has been presented to enable governments to assess the need for a directive. It could be argued that a positive effect of the directive would be the scope that it would allow certain ship-owners to undertake with their own cargo-handling where currently they are required to use the services provided by the port manager.
