Felixstowe Restitution Impacting Two Carriers

Congestion at the Port of Felixstowe has led to two carriers being unable to accept empty containers back on terminal at the moment.

The port has issued the following statement:

As a consequence of exceeding their allocated storage space for empty containers, the port will be unable to accept empty container returns via road for the following carriers on the advised dates/times:

CMA CGM. Closed from 08:00 Hrs on Tuesday 14th December until further notice.

MSC. Closed from 07:00 Hrs on Wednesday 15th December until further notice.

Customers with empty container returns for the affected carriers are asked to find alternative locations to return/store their empty containers.

This effectively means an extra journey will be needed during the round trip process, and therefore additional costs will be incurred.

** UPDATE – As of 2pm Tue 14th Dec, we understand that MSC are allowed to restitute at the port once more.
