Hi,

anyone else been informed of delays to deliveries of Hyundai cars because of Bad weather causing delays at the ports?

As far as I know Hyundai only use Tilbury in the UK, so I assume the delay is there?

Apparently the few days of bad weather we had a couple of weeks ago has caused a 3 week delay in delivery, which sounds a bit suspicious to me. Surely even if the port was closed for a few days, the delay would only be the same number of days? Assuming the port was open and doing some work the delay would be less?

Possibly. I do part-time work for the ports here in Portland and (surprise) I move new cars around. I know that when ports get backed up, certain ships get priority over others once things clear up and also, it costs the shipping company a TON of money to dock and off-load so they want to get in and out as quickly as possible. Here at the Port of Portland, somebody told me it costs the companies somewhere around $50,000 per HOUR to dock and unload. Not sure if it's the same situation in the UK but I think it might be.

There are no delays getting cars off the ships into Tilbury - there may be delays after import documentation because some road transporters are stuck in Scotland due to the weather.

My SF was ordered 16/11 and is due Tilbury 29/12.
