Transport Issues at Felixstowe Docks, UK

A combination of Felixstowe Docks changes and high demand is resulting in a large haulage shortage for full container loads out of Felixstowe Docks. We are ideally requiring 9-10days notice to ensure that we can delivery the containers to clients needs. However for the remainder of September and currently October there will continue to be issues.

Arrival times to delivery of LCL cargo can now be up to 5-7days due to heavy congestion in the ERTS warehouses around Felixstowe. While all hauliers and warehouse operators are doing their best to handle destuffing of containers as quick as possible. The sheer volume is having an impact. This is currently expected to continue through September and October based on current levels.
