In addition to this our Transport partners have been experiencing excessive delays (up to 4hrs) as a direct result of the industrial action at DPW over the past week. As a flow on effect, we have seen disruption to delivery services and the return of empty containers. In addition to the congestion being experienced as a result of infrastructure works, thus resulting in excessive waiting times at DPW.
