Given the above, there will be significant challenges in obtaining Port Slots at DP World either side of the 07th October and we anticipate delays in container availability through to the 13th of October. Please note that Kerry Logistics will do all we can to collect containers within the free wharf storage period but we will not be liable should wharf storage be incurred. 

As always, Kerry Logistics is committed to informing you about the latest developments. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local Kerry Representative.
