Track and trace: Improving freight flow

Portsmouth International Port is one of the most important ports on the English Channel and the second busiest UK cross-channel ferry port overall. It is a major freight and distribution hub specialising in fruit importation, temperature controlled storage and packaging; 60% of bananas sold in the UK are imported through this port.

To help improve freight movement and reduce the environmental impact of the fruit and vegetable supply process, Portsmouth International Port has trialled a new system that tracks and traces goods movement through the entire freight journey.
