Dear Customer,

The festive period is quickly approaching and we would like to take this opportunity to advise our clients regarding changes to our groupage and part load service schedules during December and January. The last departure dates shown are in order to arrange delivery before Christmas (excluding remote locations).

Export from UK – last departure Tuesday 14/12/2021, first departure Friday 7/1/2022
Import to UK – last departure Friday 17/12/2021, first departure Tuesday 11/1/2022

Please also be aware that there are national holidays in Italy (8th December) and Spain (6th and 8th December), which will have an impact on services to and from these countries.

Due to the further changes to import customs processes in place from 1st January 2022 we are currently experiencing extremely high volumes combined with a short supply of vehicles and anticipate this situation to continue until the Christmas holidays, we strongly recommend that cargo is moved as soon as possible as capacity is limited on the last standard departure dates.

For any shipments not able to meet these standard service deadlines there will be additional limited availability vehicles operating during the Christmas period, for further details please speak with your usual operational contact.

Kind regards,

The Viamaster International team
