Congestion Surcharge for LCL Cargo!

Further to recent announcements on delays and congestion at the port of Felixstowe, we can advise that the return of empty containers is improving.

Unfortunately there continues to be large delays at the port and vessels are taking far longer than normal to discharge. This along with the increase of volume there are still delays with LCL / Groupage containers being unloaded at the Customs Terminals, many terminals have now employed night staff in an attempted to keep up with demand.

Once again please accept our apologies for these delays.

In view of the above there has been a notice received from carriers that a £4 w/m surcharge has been implemented on all LCL cargo and a potential $150 TEU on FCL Cargo.

Unfortunately we have no alternative but to pass these costs on but will of course remove them once the situation returns to normal.

Should you have any questions or queries then please do not hesitate to let us know.
