DP World ​​Industrial Action – FTA Update 35

Dear Valued Customers & Partners,

According to FTA, the latest DP World update sees a continuation of bans and stoppages for the period from Monday 15 January now extended to Tuesday 30 January 2024.

Regrettably, we received an early morning update stating that DP World will not be opening at 0600hrs as previously communicated. Consequently, all slots for the day have been canceled.

For those whose containers have been impacted, we will be reaching out to you directly. We are actively exploring alternative slots, which may extend into the weekend or early next week. Please note that there is no guarantee of reopening at 1400hrs, considering their recent pattern of opening the following morning when a similar situation occurred last week.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and assure you that we are diligently working to reschedule all collections and deliveries. Your continued support and understanding during this time are greatly appreciated.


SILA would like to remind our clients that transport companies have communicated that surcharges for weekends, public holidays and after-hours will be applied as they strive to retrieve containers within their allotted free time.

These bans & stoppages continue to significantly impact our services, and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility during this period. Our team is committed to minimising disruptions and ensuring the smoothest operations possible. We will keep you updated on any further developments.

We acknowledge the potential impact of these disruptions; however, please be advised that SILA will not assume liability for any additional charges arising from these industrial actions.

Thank you for your continued trust and partnership and should you have any questions or concerns, kindly reach out to our dedicated team!
