Evergreen, a major Taiwanese shipping line, has decided to stop accepting bookings into UK ports with immediate effect. This is due to various factors, namely the severity of UK port congestions and a serious shortage of equipment in Asia. This decision will be in place until the situation has seen considerable improvements and is brought under control. For now, at least, this will be in place until the end of November when further announcements will be made. Any confirmed bookings will be shipped and roll over is possible, unfortunately however any pending bookings will be cancelled. If this affects any of your shipments with Banks & Lloyd, then your account manager will have or will be shortly discussing this with you and how will can circumnavigate the situation. Otherwise, if you wish to discuss this, or anything else, do not hesitate to get in touch.
