Moving Forward Together
Future proof your supply chain with innovative, efficient and sustainable cargo solutions
Is congestion at container ports disrupting your supply chain? Should you consider alternative ports that aren’t affected by these issues?
Due to major changes in supply chain demand as a result of the Pandemic and consequences of new regulations associated to Brexit, thousands of businesses have been impacted due to bottlenecks in their usual supply chain.
Knock on effects of the last 12 months have seen supply chains strangled, resulting in severe service disruption, delays, frustration and additional costs. These challenges are likely to continue in the short-term, and it’s likely that the fundamental shifts will change the future of the supply chain forever.
Businesses shipping to the UK are already considering their long term strategy and diversity, by exploring alternative gateways for exporting and importing cargo, bypassing congested ports and ensuring goods reach their end destination without delay.
What’s the solution? Port selection based on proximity to market. Shipping close to import and export distribution centres can maximise efficiency for delivering goods and tackle congestion from ports that are experiencing significant delays.
Whilst a significant amount of containers currently enter the UK through the South, much of the cargo demand comes from the North, and many businesses are finding that switching their shipping route to alternative port locations not only offers improvements in time and costs, but also provides a more sustainable proposition by reducing road miles and inland transportation.
