Freight slowdown in the UK

     Truck UK

A growing shortage of trucking capacity is slowing the movement of freight in the UK.  Carriers say the slowdown is the result of multiple issues, including increased cargo volumes, port congestion, vessel diversions and a general shortage of vehicle, driver and rail availability.

Making the situation even worse is the forced rerouting of freight from UK’s largest box port, Felixstowe, a necessary step because of information system problems.  The resulting delays are disrupting shipping schedules and increasing costs as shippers are being forced to pay extra charges for every day pick up at a terminal.
