UK government wants to allay worries about empty shelves at Christmas

Britons don’t have to worry about empty shelves, say, a toy store ahead of Christmas. British minister and Conservative MP Oliver Dowden said: The reason for the relocation of container ships from the UK’s largest port is a lack of drivers to transport containers.

On Tuesday, container carrier Maersk announced that several large ships had departed from the port of Felixstowe due to a shortage of drivers, containers could not be transported further inland and there was no space to store containers at the port. The ships were diverted to ports on the European mainland. Felixstowe in the east of England handles more than a third of containers in the UK.

Dowden said the public need not worry, because according to him the problems at the port have subsided. “I’m sure people can get their toys for Christmas. I would say just buy as usual.’

The shortage of truck drivers in the UK has led to shortages at gas stations due to insufficient fuel supply. Supermarkets and other stores have also had to contend with empty shelves due to supply issues.
