Felixstowe port clogged up with 11,000 #coronavirus #PPE containers

Coronavirus, England, Europe, Health, UK

11,000 shipping containers full of COVID PPE bought by the Government are stuck in Britain’s busiest container port.

Currently 30 per cent of container space at the Port of Felixstowe is being taken up by the PPE order as the Government have nowhere else to store it, sources claim.

This backlog of containers – some of which have been there since August – is a ‘significant factor’ in the current congestion seen at the port.
