- UK Advisory: Felixstowe Port Closure -

You may have seen in the recent news that Unite the Union have confirmed a second round of strikes that are due to take place at the Port of Felixstowe. This industrial action is set to run for eight days from 27th September 2022 to 5th October 2022. To make matters worse, this strike also coincides with the strike taking place at the Port of Liverpool from 19th September 2022 to 3rd October 2022.

 

Should this strike action go ahead, there will be significant disruption to vessel arrivals. In the first round of strikes, delays of up to four weeks have been seen as shipping lines amended schedules and vessels were diverted at various ports prior to arrival at Felixstowe. In addition to vessel delays, in the last strike all Vehicle Booking Slots were removed from the Port system, thus meaning no deliveries could take place for the duration of the strike.

 

F.S Mackenzie will do everything we can to mitigate the impact this strike has to our customers, including but not limited to ensuring all containers are moved off quay as promptly as possible prior to the strike. Even with our very best efforts, there is likely to be inevitable delays and additional charges that will be out of our control.

 

F.S Mackenzie will remain in frequent dialogue with our customers to ensure we minimise the potential impact of this strike, both in terms of delays, and additional costs that are levied by the Port and Shipping Lines.
