Got distracted by the tits I see. Actually I was hoping anons could help me figure out which UK ports to watch to try to pick up on trafficking.
Port trafficking is pervasive WW. Tightly controlled of course. Software, specialized containers, geo tracking, etc… paid inside people in all key areas necessary to appear lagit. They have been doing this for a very long time. Its all rigged. Dark digging…take a light. Many discussions last night regarding this topic. Review qrsear.ch there is a ton of content anons have already provided. Good luck anon.
An oft overlooked port is Felixstowe; short sail to Zeebrugge in Belgium.
My Dude, I R da boatfag been watching ports and tracking ships for about two years now. Ex-Navy with a decent knowledge of how merchant fleets and ports operate. I would like to come across a spoopy outfit like Gulftainer in Port Canaveral or an outfit like EMP freight that would be easier to get track. We got DWS in Canaveral area so I wonder if us Yanks can figure a politico like that or do I gotta ping on the Brits again. The one suggested the port of Bristol that I never woulda thought of. If I can find the ingress into the UK, then track the overland/rail transfers to the ports on the western coast like Liverpool and see who heads to NYC, PHilly, and especially Baltimore (Sparrows Island) then we might get a schedule figured out and slip USCG a little heads up notice when one might be coming in. Brits could hit the bastards coming out of Netherlands/Belguim ports. We dry up the supply
I theorize they are airing this garbage while traveling on waters…easy enough to simply push a container over the side should someone come sniffing around…
What if that is exactly what they do? Do a show after leaving port, get rid of evidence before arrival? Sounds like sick demented DS thinking to me.
Laws are a bit different in the water. Makes ‘watch the water’ stand right the fuck out.
Containers fall off ships, or get washed off, so frequently nobody bats an eye. The Dutch thing was on land, containers are cheap to get since there’s so many of them.
The UK bit I posted earlier was a container that was hiding people behind tomatoes. You know, gotta rush unloading/inspection because cargo declared perishable. Container went from ship to truck, something went wrong and most inside died.
I’m trying to pick up ports I can scan while I do everything else like I do now. I can figure out what is normal scheduling then odd ones will stick out. Backtracking the report on the tomato container source, then I get an idea about maybe expanding into Belgium, otherwise Netherlands still considered primary loading ports
Nothing gets into UK by sea and then sent by rail to another port.
The UK is an island.
Container ships start somewhere east like Hamburg or Rotterdam, then make stops at UK and pther ports and up over the Atlantic to Newfoundland and Canada or the USA.
I shipped a container from Essex, a short distance by the A12 from the port of Harwich. But the truck took my container to Liverpool where a ship picked it up. The ship came from Hamburg, visited Rotterdam and Le Havre before Liverpool and then next stop was Montreal.
Watch how the ships move. Notice that in International Waters they travel in lanes. It is easy for them to pass close buy and move containers from one to another (or even shift cargo out of one container into another, and nobody would know without careful detailed satellite surveillance.
Also a fishing boat can pick up illegal cargo and then bring it in without getting checked by Coast Guard or Customs.
Look at satellite view of Seattle and Vancouver area and see how complex the coastline is with islands blocking the view and tons of domestic barge traffic between islands and mainland, to hide illegal cargo from customs.
Dollar stores in Vancouver are full on contaminated crap from China. You can spell the chemicals when you walk in and see the fake counterfeit brands of food on the shelves. Why would anyone eat that poison?
Tons of illegal chinese workers serviced by Chinese prostitutes. Filthy chinese markets smelling of rotten meat where only chinese go shopping. Chinese restaurants with no English signs, full of poor chinese people.
This has to be Eastern China, the sleeper towns of Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond. They have already invaded Canada. In eastern China, which everyone else calls the West Coast, white people are the minority. Asians are the majority.
They don’t make the money they don’t deliver the cargo.
I said one night months ago that it would be mega easy to pull the equipment out of a merchant ships gym, or use the crew lounge, even dry goods storage areas, to hide people. Stick ’em in the container just before port so there’s no body odor to give it away. That why LAX/LGB was a big deal, pier 400 has a bunch of tracks super close to the docks
This kind of data analysis is key
It is why I recommend that people set up Data Scientist tools.
Store the data in a real database to begin with. That way you can more easily correlate with other data by doing SQL queries.
If you need a spreadsheet, use LibreOffice which can pull its data from an SQL database
But consider using real data science tools like Jupyter Notebook and Orange 3.
Install PostgreSQL database using the 2UDA installer for version 12
ANd then use the 2UDA installer to get Orange3 installed here
Make sure that after you install it, you scroll down and check out the blog articles.
Also many other people have written tons of blog articles on how to use Orange3 to do machine learning, neural nets, and all kinds of data analysis.
If you want to write Python code, the use Jupyter Notebook to help you organize your snippets of code and data analyses.
Anaconda is the easiest way that I know to get Python and Jupyter notebook installed. For most people Python 3.7 is all you will need. Only people who are going to tackle huge streaming data need to worry about the features in Python 3.8

There is not much difference between an Intelligence Analyst, a Data Scientist, and an Investigative Journalist. If you have the will to become one of these, the tools and the info are all available with NO college fees necessary to learn.
The Watch Log is a phsyical 3-ring binder that has entries for a vessels’s departures and arrivals. Date/Time she left, where she left, where she arrived and Date.Time she got there. I also live in a place known to host Hurricanes so power outages do not harm the Log.
