Shipping Delays

UK docks are currently struggling with congestion, causing major delays to imported goods getting to retailers and manufacturers. There are several reasons for the delays including:

  1. The Covid pandemic
  2. A huge influx of import traffic due to businesses replenishing stock after the lockdown and making stockpiles before the Brexit transition period
  3. Increase in unloading times as containers are now being thoroughly sanitised
