Is there a 'best' port to be shipping from to get items quickly from China to UK?

In terms of Ports - one port will not be necessarily "quicker" than another (technically maybe Fuzhou is quicker by 1 day then Shenzhen but 1 day is not much). To me it is more about finding a port with your first item, then trying to build your subsequent items suppliers around that port region by finding manufacturers of the next item(s) in that area. This enables you to start shipping items together increasing your ability to take advantage of the economies of scale as well as getting a much more organised approach to ordering. i.e. order all your items at the same time.
