Container after container arrives at your door, and all come through 1 port – Felixstowe. Felixstowe is the busiest UK port handling 4,000 ships a year, and dealing with 3.4 million TEU (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units), which represents 40% of all container handling in the UK, but is the only 35th largest port in the world. It is owned by Hutchison Ports, a Hong Kong based organisation.
