ANNOUNCEMENT - UK Trucking – Driver Shortage

We are experiencing severe issues booking delivery slots. The UK driver shortage for both Domestic Trucking and Import / Export movements is causing many delays and unexpected charges which unfortunately we must pass onto our clients.


Ocean Shipments:

Many of our ocean FCL / LCL carriers are implementing Fuel Surcharges and or Driver Retention Charges with little notice. We are discovering these new charges are taking effect when cargo is in transit, therefore an unknown cost when we originally quoted.

UK Domestic:

Our Fuel Surcharge starts 1st October 2021 until further notice. This will be reviewed on a monthly basis in line with a formula provided by the RHA.

Air Shipments:

Fuel Surcharge is always quoted as a separate charge heading per KG.


We trust you understand the current market and we appreciate your continued support during these turbulent times within our industry.
