Christmas is coming – and many will be shopping earlier and closer to home this year to ensure the sleigh arrives with goods on board.
As everyone knows, it’s been a challenging year for shipping with the Suez Canal obstruction in March, and both driver and fuel shortages adding to the supply chain crunch as economies re-opened from Covid-19 restrictions.
For UK-Europe road freight, there have also been the changes to European shipping post-Brexit. And there are further changes to come to border procedures from 1 January 2022, when full import-export controls and checks will be in place.
We want to reassure customers that we always do our best to ensure a smooth and safe delivery at competitive rates. However, we do recommend allowing plenty of leeway to get your freight consignments booked in, especially for European groupage in the run-up to Christmas. (See our European import and export trailer schedules with last trailer departures.)
We’ve posted our key UK freight dates in the flyer from our member network Palletways over the holiday season. As Platinum members of Palletways, we will be following its delivery schedule for UK pallets. This is strictly for network freight only.
