Christmas Warehouse Closures and Transport Requirements

With three weeks to go before Christmas, we would like to let you know that the Mondiale team will be working right up to and through the holidays to ensure that your cargo remains moving.

The ports will be working as normal over this period and due to the shortage of capacity at the ports, containers are required to be moved within the standard free time periods. Similarly any empty containers not returned in time will incur standard detention penalties.

With advance notice during the holiday period, Mondiale can (where required) plan for and store cargo off the port to reduce demurrage charges, and look to deliver the containers to your site when your warehouse reopens. If we are not advised that your warehouse will be closed on normal working days over the holiday period, we will continue to deliver as per normal.

Given that there is considerable volume moving in the lead up to Christmas, we would ask that you provide as much notice as possible for empty de-hire, so we can coordinate and return empty containers prior to any closures of warehouses from the 21st to the 25th and from the 30th and 31st of December. 

If your warehouse/company is closing over Christmas it would be appreciated if you could please complete and return the following by email to : by the 17th of December.
