Suspension or Delays In Transit
IFE are doing our best to listen to all of our client’s concerns during this uncertain period, and provide practical solutions where we can. The shipping lines are currently putting into place their contingency plans during the current crisis – one of which we feel may be beneficial to our clients who are perhaps hesitant on moving freight due to warehouses being shut in the UK. SOT / DIT could be an option to offload cargo and hold at various transhipment Ports until you are ready for re-connection on a new vessel to intended destination. The service is available for all cargo at booking stage in Origin with the exception of hazardous or out of gauge goods and reefer containers.
This could help to allow business continuity and increase flexibility. We are happy to help if you would like any further information on this service!
