Delays At Ports


Over the last few weeks there have been significant delays in unloading containers and arranging deliveries of containers at some of the major UK Ports.  This is mainly due to new safety measures relating to Covid19. Capacity has been considerably reduced as all port equipment has to be deep cleaned after every shift and this has come at a time when workload is high due to an increase in containers coming into the UK. Brexit issues have also added to the problems.    

To mitigate this the team at Ashtons are working daily to track orders and update customers and we encourage any customers with questions regarding your orders to please contact our sales team on 01226 273700.
