London Gateway To The Rescue
The severe weather conditions the United Kingdom endured over recent months has caused severe disruption throughout the shipping industry. Gale-force winds and torrential rain has disrupted not only the road/rail network and infrastructure but forced temporary closure to many UK Ports and Terminal Operations – with Felixstowe suffering significantly.
Fortunately, the new state of the art GB£3.2billion terminal at London Gateway has provided an alternative solution to the backlog.
Many ocean vessels schedule to discharge at Felixstowe, have been unable to secure berthing slots as a direct result of the unprecedented weather conditions, were re-routed to London Gateway minimising the disruption and delays.
