Update: 29th June 2015
Due to strike action at Calais and subsequent issues around border security, traffic in and out of mainland Europe has been delayed. The delays are expected to last up to 48 hours. The situation is improving with minimal delays on export traffic. Inward flows continue to suffer longer delays on the crossing from France to UK, which is having a knock on effect on the availability of outward bound transports and drivers.
Start date: 11th June 2015
Industrial actions by customs unions/staff start 15th June 2015. This is likely to impact inbound flows for all mail and parcels.
