On the 7th January 2014, the Port of Felixstowe communicated their intention to introduce further charges for VBS bookings in addition to charges already paid by our hauliers.
After a period of consultation, the port has now confirmed the extra charge for VBS slots (which has already been implemented with effect from Monday 10th March 2014).
This will increase our hauliers' daily costs and it is likely that a number of them will pass these costs onto us, costs which we in turn cannot absorb and regretably will be forced to pass onto our customers.
The charge amounts to £1 per container.
