Southampton Port News

Following the recent delays and problems in the UK main ports we would like to update you further.

Congestion and delays at the Port of Southampton has deteriorated recently and we are now facing similar issues to those that have been experienced at Felixstowe.

While all the main UK container ports have been working through major delays, Felixstowe has been particularly challenging, contributing to delivery delays of up two to three weeks.

We are now experiencing similar problems at Southampton, including severe congestion, empty containers being refused and no VBS transport booking slots being available.

Please make sure you contact CGATE Logistics UK to plan your shipments in advance. This will certainly minimize likely delays and unexpected costs.
