If you have deliveries booked for Thursday PM or Friday morning we would suggest bringing them forward (if possible) to tomorrow morning so we can collect containers early to avoid the MET office severe weather warning.

Weather Warning – Poor sea conditions in Southern Europe

We have been advised that due to weather issues of waves of up to 11 meters in Southern Europe, vessels may be forced to slow down or seek shelter until conditions improve. This will have an impact on vessel ETAs into the UK.

Below is a quote from a carrier :

“Sea conditions are expected to deteriorate to the point where vessels are unable to transit the Bay and will seek shelter either in the Med or NEU waters, waiting out the storm”

If any of your shipments are affected then your account manager will be in contact in due course. If you have any questions please get in touch.
