Felixstowe still facing IT problems

While Felixstowe claims to be over the worst with its IT problems, business is continuing to go elsewhere

The introduction of a new TOS has proved a nightmare for the UK’s biggest container handler.

 

In July, the 2M TA2 and COEX services were moved from Felixstowe to Liverpool for 12 weeks.

 

A Maersk spokeswoman told worldcargonews online that other preferred ports have been London Gateway and Southampton. No containers have been diverted to Rotterdam. In one instance, containers were dropped at Zeebrugge and then feedered back to the UK.

 

Another source who declined to be named said that CMA CGM has been discharging large numbers of containers in Zeebrugge and he thinks that Cosco is doing the same.

 

A spokesman for DP World Antwerp Gateway commented that ships calling Felixstowe before Antwerp "have been turning up to one week late."

 

  • As part of a £60.4M rail improvement scheme announced in February 2017, Network Rail has secured permission to build a new bridleway bridge across the Felixstowe branch line to provide a safe public route across the railway while enabling for more goods to be moved by rail freight and improving reliability for passenger services. Network Rail has already begun important engineering works to upgrade the branch line, building the space needed for 1.4km of extra track to be laid between Trimley and the level crossing at Gun Lane.
