Dear Valued Customers;

Coscon UK has received advice from the Port of Felixstowe that, effective immediately, Felixstowe port will not be able to accept empty containers back on quay for the foreseeable future due to, backlog, resource and space availability issues at the Ports terminals.

We are attempting to source alternative options for empty storage in the Felixstowe region and elsewhere, however as a similar notification has been sent to a number of different carriers, storage space for empty containers is not readily available.

Please contact our container control team for updates to the situation.
