It’s not yet October and space/congestion ex Europe and U.K is already an issue.

There are currently backlogs at all major Asian tranship ports, over which containers from U.K/Europe transit.

No shipping-line is exempt.

The last thing we want to do is make rash decisions and ‘go out of the fry-pan and into the fire’ in the mistaken belief swapping bookings to a different shipping line will some-how get around the issue.

There is no way around overall demand exceeding supply.

We are all in the same boat, both figuratively and literally here.

Rest assured we’ll continue to work hard on your behalf, keep you informed as to where you stand.

Note: The situation tends to affect FCL bookings more than say LCL ones.   

U.K Contact: Nicky

Europe Contact: Tanya
