You may previously have seen in the news this week that Storm Barra continues to impair much of Ireland, the West coast of England and some Channel Islands.
Ferry sailings between the UK and Ireland have been tremendously unsettled and are now running at a 24 hour delay. Numerous sailings were cancelled this week, and this is expected to continue through the end of this week.
We understand this is a busy time of year, but please bear with us, as I’m afraid these delays are entirely outside of our control. You should expect a minimum 24hr delay on all Irish shipments dispatched from Wednesday 8th December 2021 through to the end of the business week.
The company who runs the ferries from England to the Channel Islands have further anticipated cancellations and delays for shipments to both Jersey and Guernsey. These delays are now reaching approximately 48-72 hour mark due to Storm Barra.
Consignments will be loaded and presented for shipping, however we are unable to guarantee or confirm shipments at this stage.
All perishables and pharmaceuticals will be loaded as priority freight.
Please note once consignments arrive to the islands, deliveries will be delayed.
Should the delays directly concern your shipment, we will be in touch with as many updates as possible.
