The shipping route between New York and Liverpool is one of the oldest and most established shipping routes between the UK and the USA. Up until the 1960’s, Liverpool to New York was the only way to cross to the USA for trade and passengers alike.
At one time, items such as cotton, tea and tobacco were traded between the two nations and stored in warehouses such as Liverpool’s Albert Dock. During the Second World War, food, materials and vehicles were shipped from USA to liverpool across the Atlantic, running the gauntlet of the Nazi U-boats.
After the war, trade increased and other ports in the UK grew, but the route between Liverpool and New York remains the fastest way to trade goods between the UK and the USA.
