Announced strike action at Port of Felixstowe

Dear Valued Customer,

Hamburg Süd is aware of the announced eight-day strike action at the Port of Felixstowe later this month.

The strike action is planned to start on Sunday 21 August, and end on Monday 29 August, and is expected to cause significant operational delays.

Negotiations between the Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company and the union Unite are scheduled to continue today, 8 August.

Our teams continue working hard on planning appropriate contingencies and expect to share concrete details and actions we are taking shortly. As we work through the planning, we appreciate your understanding and support, and will keep you updated on any developments, as the situation can change in line with the ongoing negotiations.

For the sake of planning ahead, we encourage you to reach out to your local Customer Experience representative to discuss available options to mitigate the impact of the strike action.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your local Hamburg Süd office if you have any questions.

Our teams are always by your side.

Kind regards,

Your Hamburg Süd Team
