ABSTRACT
The article discusses the transport and distribution process of products. It explains the impact of globalisation, competition and larger quantities of materials for transport on the development of distribution patterns in Great Britain. It asserts the need to redesign existing facilities to cope with increasing costs, congestion at ports, and negative environmental impact of container ports, citing the new London Gateway Port and the Distribution Park on Thames Estuary and one in Bristol.
