Industrial Action at Liverpool Port 14.11.2022 – 21.11.2022

Strike action at the Port of Liverpool has been underway since 24.10.2022 and is due to end at 06:00am on 07.11.2022.

However, further industrial action by union members has now been announced by the port for the period 14.11.2022 to 21.11.2022.

As with previous strikes, Liverpool 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 their strategies.

We will ensure you are kept up to date with developments to this evolving situation and on any impact these strikes may have to your shipments, along with the advance notice of possible delays and costs.
