CONGESTION TO CONTINUE THROUGHOUT JANUARY
Storm damage from 10 October 2017 continues to affect schedules as efforts are made to repair damage to the equipment at terminals. The congestion at the Port of Durban will likely continue to cause havoc in Cape Town through January with vessels increasingly bypassing the port to try to make up time.
Furthermore, bad weather at the port of Coega (Port Elizabeth) also continues to impact the service and this berthing congestion is expected to continue throughout the windy season. Due to these delays we urge you to place your orders sooner rather than later to give us ample time to work around the constant rescheduling of stacks.
We will keep you updated should your shipment be delayed in any manner. Please note that we are however reliant on the shipping lines to provide us with this information.
