Peel Ports is suffering significant loading delays for trucks at its Liverpool2 port facilities, the Liverpool Echo reports. That’s due to an increase in traffic following a service shift by MAersk from the Port of Felixstowe, as outlined in Panjiva research of July 13, that resulted from the latter’s disruptions due to IT system upgrades.

The local delays can have global supply chain consequence. Panjiva data shows that shipments from Felixstowe to the U.S. had overtaken those of Liverpool by 41.5% in the first six months of 2018. Felixstowe’s outbound handling to America climbed 3.0x on a year earlier in the first half of 2018 on a year earlier vs. Liverpool’s 14.0%.
