Allyn International is committed to providing you with the latest updates during this very fluid and ever-changing period. Our goal with the information provided below is to give you at a high-level, a current overview of the most heavily impacted regions.

Workers at the largest airport in the UK are planning to strike on February 9, 13, 16 and 18. Unite union workers at London Heathrow Airport are in dispute with airport officials over an announced pay-cut for engineering, airside operations and security employees. The airport will remain operational but coupled with post-Brexit challenges, increased COVID
infections and now a reduced workforce delays are likely.

The following tables will provide the current cargo transport operational status and capacity levels for heavily affected countries.

  • Capacity is limited from Australia to the Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Minor container shortages.
