    I did an infrastructure upgrade for a UK-wide freight company (admittedly it was about 15 years ago) and I spent time in their Felixstowe base. Shipping movements are planned months in advance - I had to ensure that a system which was being phased out and replaced could stay running for at least a year after it was supposed to be redundant, because it wasn't possible to fully migrate the data to the replacement system. I got to know the sea-freight team quite well. Sea-freight to/from Europe was generally routed via Tilbury, and Felixstowe was used for the mega-ships which mostly arrive from Asia these days. As I said, that was some time ago, but I'd be surprised if the tonnage from Europe was more than 10% of that passing through Felixstowe.

    I've only done 4-5 years in various 'logistics' businesses, but I've seen enough disruption from strikes, weather problems, and bad planning to know that 'just in time' is asking for trouble. It's the sort of policy that gets designed by accountants. I also know which 'logistics' companies I'd steer well clear of.

    I'm wondering why this is in the wrong forum, it doesn't have anything to do with Brexit (yet).

      Unfortunately a lot of their goods have to pass through Calais, and if some Frenchmen want to blockade it until we give them what they want, there's not much you or I can do about that.

          I thought you were delusional. Now it is clear to me you are just naive.

            I'm not passing anything. I wasn't responsible for the negotiations, and I'm not responsible for the actions of some Frenchmen.
