Felixstowe Port Restitution Issues

Felixstowe Port Restitution Issues

 

 

The volume of containers awaiting transport, at the already congested Felixstowe port, has led to carriers insisting on empty containers being returned to other ports.

With the driver shortage crisis continuing to impact deliveries, carriers that utilise Felixstowe, including Maersk, Evergreen & CMA-CGM, are now unable to restitute their containers back to the port.

These restitution issues mean that empty containers must be returned to ports such as London Gateway or Tilbury, with an extra journey being incurred during the round trip process.

Unfortunately, this is currently resulting in additional costs being incurred for container transport through the port.

The carriers affected are reportedly working with the port to come up with solutions, with a view to reopening Felixstowe restitution soon.

The Atlantic Pacific team are continuing to monitor the situation closely. If you require further information, or are concerned about current shipments, then please do not hesitate to contact one of the team.
