UK Advisory: Liverpool Port Strike 19th Sept – 3rd Oct

12 September 2022


A port strike is going to affect vessels arriving/departing the port of Liverpool from 19th September to 3rd October.

UK Exports – North America

Where possible Shipco are trying to secure additional volume ex Southampton and London Gateway to replace the allocation for Liverpool.

Space is at a premium, and as such we would recommend clients book early in order to secure space on these vessels.

During this period, we ask clients delivering in to direct their trucks into Purfleet. In the event of delivery to outer depots Shipco will charge a diversion fee for transfers during this 2- week period of £15 w/m.

Bookings cancelled within 24 hours of loading will be billed “Dead Freight”.

UK Imports – North America

There will be no vessels arriving into Liverpool during this period, with the Atlantic Sail arriving 5th October, followed by the Atlantic Star arriving 8th October (correct at time of going to market).
