Freight capacity issues

There are currently huge volumes of freight moving across Europe as we all prepare for Brexit.

Whilst capacity is obviously an issue we are also seeing huge delays getting into and out of the UK. This is being caused by the volume of trailers moving coupled with preparations for Brexit.
Unfortunately, we expect this situation to remain into the New Year. The adjacent photo was taken on the approach to Dover on Tuesday evening and gives a great example of the current issues where drivers experienced delays of around 8 hours. We are obviously doing everything possible to ensure your freight reaches its destination on time but we must remind you that delays are very likely. 

If you have any freight requirements in the build-up to Christmas and the New year please contact your local representative who will endeavour to find a solution for you.
