UK Storm Francis Update

25/08/2020

Storm Francis has now hit the UK. We have been informed that both Felixstowe and Gateway portside are now closed. Felixstowe are not planning to reopen until midday tomorrow. Whilst Southampton is still open, they are not working to full capacity. As the ports haven’t worked to full capacity for several months this is expected to create further pressure on operations. 

Most inland depots are working now but they will be forced to close if and when the winds increase.

We expect the port closures to significantly impact hauliers over the coming days. If you have any queries regarding specific bookings please contact the customer service teams.
