Find out how we mapped the value of shipping cargo flows to improve the evidence base for marine plan policies.
The UK maritime sector plays a critical role in the growth and development of the country, enabling the import and export of goods and providing additional value through maritime and business services.
The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is responsible for preparing marine plans in England. To improve the evidence base used in developing port and shipping marine plan policies, the MMO sought a means to assign values to shipping cargo.
Earlier this year, the MMO commissioned us to review, develop and apply approaches to assigning value to shipping cargo flows. A report detailing the approaches has now been published on the HM Government website.
