Felixstowe Port strike looking increasingly likely

Date Added: 9 August 2022

Port of Felixstowe strike, 21st - 29th August

We have today made clients aware of an eight day strike action planned at the Port of Felixstowe, commencing on Sunday 21st August.

The latest talks to reach a pay deal agreement unfortunately failed yesterday (8.8.22) and it is looking increasingly likely that strike action will take place later this month.

Felixstowe port is the largest port in the UK, handling more than 4million TEU's each year, so if the strike does go ahead it will cause major disruption to supply chains. With European ports already congested, it will be extremely difficult for shipping lines to provide viable alternatives.

Davies Turner's experienced ocean teams are working hard to put strategies in place to help manage the situation. We are in discussions with the shipping lines to assess contingency plans in order to provide the best options for shippers in an effort to mitigate the impact of strike action.

We will continue to monitor developments.
