Easter is fast approaching and many UK Forwarders will shut down for 4 days: Good Friday 30th March, Saturday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday 2nd April.
From previous years we have learned that the pre-Easter cargo peak usually covers the two weeks prior to Good Friday. This year we expect higher level of bookings since Easter coincides with the end of the month. The Easter peak is likely to last until 8th April.
For your airfreight shipments to the UK, we recommend that you plan your bookings now in order to avoid costly storage charges.
Some UK importers shut down early on Thursday and some even shut down for one week. Your Exporters should check with their UK clients which days they receive goods at this time of the year.
Scarbrough will be closed on Good Friday, March 3, 2018.
