Felixstowe Shipment Delays

We are currently experiencing delays in incoming shipments following recent issues in the implementation of a new operating system at Felixstowe port. 

Operations at Felixstowe continue to run slowly, with boats partially unloading, missing the port or being diverted to London Gateway, Liverpool or Southampton. 

Because of this, ports at Liverpool and Southampton are experiencing way more traffic than usual and do not have the infrastructure in place to cope with the increased volumes, which is impacting on the transit time of goods to CCL. 

The Logistics team at Cambridge Commodities is working very closely with forwarders and the ports to get stock delivered as quickly as possible. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, we anticipate several more weeks of delays is likely.
