Volkswagen Group United Kingdom Ltd (‘VWG’) has port facilities at both Immingham and Grimsby for the import of manufactured vehicles to be distributed within the United Kingdom (‘UK’). These port facilities on the east coast of England being the most cost-effective means of importing vehicles into the UK, VWG opposes this Application on the grounds that the loss of its Immingham port facility will have both a severe impact on the VWG business viability in competition with other brands in the UK and a subsequent loss of choice to vehicle purchasers within the UK.
