Storms Dudley & Eunice – Logistics Impact

 

Storm Dudley has already started to impact logistics in Ireland as it arrived today, with high winds stopping operations at Dublin port and Belfast also affected.

The storm, bringing winds of up to 80mph is not due to abate in Ireland until tomorrow morning, before Storm Eunice arrives on Friday.

Dudley has now arrived in the North of England and Scotland and is already impacting rails services and travel. The East and South of England are expected to avoid the worst of the storm, therefore it is unclear whether this will impact the UK’s main ports.

However, Storm Eunice is expected to sweep into England from the South West on Friday, and as it moves East  towards ports such as Southampton, London Gateway and Felixstowe, they could become non-operational due to the high winds.

With two large storms arriving back to back this week, there is the potential for further logistics delays throughout the UK and Ireland.

The Atlantic Pacific team will be monitoring the situation closely. Should you require further information, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
