Shippers and liners received both good and bad news yesterday as they surveyed the Nordic port strikes and congestion recently.

In Germany, an agreement was reached between the union and the port to avoid future strikes. In the UK, increasingly outrageous rhetoric by trade union leaders has alarmed many in the supply chain.

At Felixstowe, (the country’s leading container port, which handles more than 40% of her parcels in the UK), began an eight-day strike, which could last until Christmas if employers don’t accept wage demand.
