Planned UK Port Strike – Felixstowe

As you are no doubt aware a port strike at FELIXSTOWE port is planned to commence as follows:-

“Eight(8) days of strike action at the port will run from Sunday 21 August ending on Monday 29 August”

We should note that this is planned and is not yet confirmed although recent negotiations did not meet with a satisfactory solution. Any contingency planning by carriers has not yet been disclosed and this will affect all operations at Felixstowe and other UK ports may also be affected.

We will do everything we can to mitigate delays and minimise any additional costs levied, however if this planned action proceeds all ports will be under pressure from any port rotation changes by carriers during this period.

Thank you for your patience,

Globelink Fallow Limited
