Future Trade through the Port of London
The Port of London Authority (PLA) commissioned Oxford Economics to produce forecasts of cargo handled in the Port of London to the year 2050 and identify opportunities and challenges for the PLA and stakeholders.
The Port of London plays a central role in supporting the capital's economy, so it is important to ensure it can continue to help deliver economic value and support jobs over the long-term. In this context, the cargo forecasts presented in this report provide guidance on economic direction and opportunity, with the purpose of informing strategic planning initiatives undertaken by the PLA and stakeholders.
Specific attention was given to the impact of the UK government’s decarbonisation strategy and implications of achieving the 'net zero' emissions target for the volume and composition of future trade flows handled by the port.
