1 UK Maritime Freight Statistics System Perspective from Maritime Statistics Branch UK Department for Transport (DfT) Jeremy Grove Perspective from Maritime Statistics Branch UK Department for Transport (DfT) Jeremy Grove

2 UK Statistical System Largely decentralised across government departments. Bound together by a common professional group within the civil service, working to a common Code of Practice, overseen by a governing Board which reports (from April 2008) directly to UK Parliament. Central Office for National Statistics produces many of the main economic and other series, but many other statistics produced in policy departments. Maritime Statistics are the responsibility of the Department for Transport. Largely decentralised across government departments.

5 UK organisational structure Department for Transport (DfT) - responsible for maritime policy and management (including statistics) Maritime & Coastguard Agency (an agency of DfT) - responsible for marine safety Maritime industry – e.g. Port Associations (BPA, UKMPG), Chamber of Shipping, seafarer unions Department for Transport (DfT) - responsible for maritime policy and management (including statistics) Maritime & Coastguard Agency (an agency of DfT) - responsible for marine safety Maritime industry – e.g. Port Associations (BPA, UKMPG), Chamber of Shipping, seafarer unions

6 History of UK port traffic statistics Collection of statistics on port traffic taken over by DfT in Data included ‘Mode of appearance’ and simple commodity and route breakdowns New system needed to meet requirements of EU Maritime Statistics Directive (95/64/EC) – more route and vessel detail Data collected from ports and sipping lines or agents Collection of statistics on port traffic taken over by DfT in Data included ‘Mode of appearance’ and simple commodity and route breakdowns New system needed to meet requirements of EU Maritime Statistics Directive (95/64/EC) – more route and vessel detail Data collected from ports and sipping lines or agents

7 Other statistics Smaller surveys – sea passengers, roro lorries, inland waterways Fleet – Lloyds Register Fairplay World Fleet database purchased. Used for fleet stats and to link with IMO number in port traffic returns Ship arrivals – data purchased from LMIU & others Seafarers – surveys of UK officer, rating & trainee numbers Port employment & accident rates – survey of ports in 2004, may be updated shortly Smaller surveys – sea passengers, roro lorries, inland waterways Fleet – Lloyds Register Fairplay World Fleet database purchased.

8 Current challenges Inland origin and destination of port traffic Commodity detail Timeliness vs. comprehensiveness Port capabilities ‘End to end’ journeys Employment statistics Accident and safety statistics Inland origin and destination of port traffic Commodity detail Timeliness vs. comprehensiveness Port capabilities ‘End to end’ journeys Employment statistics Accident and safety statistics
