Further Strikes at Liverpool Port

Following on from recent industrial action at the Port of Liverpool, Neptune has been informed that the strikes will restart from 06:00am on 24.10.2022.

The new action is planned to take place for two weeks until 06:00am on 07.11.2022.

The port is likely to remove all Vehicle Booking Slots (VBS) whilst the strikes persist, which would result in hauliers having no direct access to collect containers from the port.

Any charges that may be incurred due to the strike action will remain for the account of the importer, however Neptune is liaising with carriers to work on contingencies and to understand any plans they may have to mitigate them.

The situation is still developing and we will ensure you are kept up to date on any impact these strikes may have to your shipments, along with the advance notice of possible delays and costs.
