Customs Clearance Manchester

The Port of Manchester in North West England was created as a customs port on 1 January 1894, four months before the opening of the Manchester Ship Canal. It extended along the whole 36-mile (58 km) length of the canal, from Eastham in the west to Manchester in the east, absorbing the Port of Runcorn, which had been created in 1862. The creation of the new port moved the Port of Liverpool‘s boundary 11 miles (18 km) to the west.[1] The Ship Canal transformed Manchester from a landlocked city into a major sea port, at its height the third-busiest port in the United Kingdom.[2] Once delivered to the port goods could be transported to other parts of the country such as Leeds to the east, and up to 100 miles (160 km) south as far as Birmingham.
