Most people will be aware that we are looking at two short weeks in a row.
Interestingly enough, freight volumes don’t reduce during this time and as a consequence, extreme pressure will be applied, especially where bottlenecks normally occur, particularly at the Port.
In addition to this already difficult situation, the extreme weather we are currently facing is obviously making the situation worse. The port is presently non operation due to high winds, with little improvement expected before early afternoon.
This will create massive issues for all containers and especially with export containers that are close to the port cut off.
Importers can also expect delays in the arrival of FCL containers, and also significant delays in unpacking and delivery of LCL cargo.
Please contact our Customer Services Team if further details are required.
