Brexit uncertainty puts pressure on capacity

With only a little more than a month to go before the UK leaves the European Union, the political situation remains quite chaotic.

In light of the uncertainty over how the UK will leave the European Union - with or without a deal - the market is currently witnessing rapidly increasing freight volumes between Scandinavia and the UK.

Like in March/ April, the increase in freight volumes adds pressure to the capacity of drivers, trucks and trailers in the UK.

We would like to draw attention to the fact that delays may occur due to the current situation and the pressure on capacity. For that reason, our transit times between the UK and Scandinavia are indicative only.

DSV monitors developments closely and, based on the current demand for transportation in October, it is our estimate that freight volumes will increase even further.

Please liaise with your usual contact person if you have any questions regarding your shipments between Scandinavia and the UK.
