UK Haulage Crisis – What’s happening!
Chaotic seems to be an accurate word to describe the UK haulage industry at the moment. A combination of congestion at container ports and a massive shortage of HGV drivers are causing delays and frustration all over the UK and this unfortunately is effecting our supplies and customer deliveries.
All this has meant that for the UK pallet networks hitting timed delivery slots is becoming ever more challenging.
Our advice to customers is to be as organised as possible and plan well in advance whenever you can. While it used to be commonplace for orders to be fulfilled within 2-3 working days we are now looking at least 10-12 days in order to fulfil orders.
