The Financial Times has reported that some ships were rerouted at Felixstowe. A spokesman for the port said: “The pre-Christmas peak, combined with haulage shortages, congested inland terminals, poor vessel schedule reliability and the pandemic, has resulted in a build-up of containers at the port.

“Empty container levels remain high as import containers are returned and we are asking shipping lines to remove them as quickly as possible.”

The delays comes as the Christmas period approaches, prompting concerns for many about deliveries.
