Watch now: Delivering for Britain

As the UK prepares to leave the European Union there is a renewed focus on its trading relationships with the world. 95% of the UK’s international trade is moved by sea and shipping has never been more important to economic prosperity. In this film we show how the industry is preparing for Brexit, how it is influencing the political landscape and how it is leading the world in investment, skills and technology – in short, this is how we are delivering for Britain.
