High Winds

Winds in the UK are forecast to increase and remain high over the next few days with yellow weather warnings being issued by the Met Office.

These warnings cover the ports of Felixstowe, Southampton and London Gateway.

The ports will cease crane and port operations once windspeeds reach 45 mph. Felixstowe is also advising that Vehicle Booking Slots may be reclaimed by the port in the event operations cease meaning hauliers will not be able to collect containers as planned.

Hauliers are warning of expected disruptions as a result of this and we may see slower turnaround times on the port or closures if windspeeds exceed 45 mph.

We are working closely with our hauliers to mitigate any delays to scheduled deliveries and should your shipments be directly affected we will advise you accordingly.

If you have any questions regarding the above please do not hesitate to contact us.
