A second week of strikes at the UK’s biggest container port of Felixstowe from the end of this month and from Tuesday at Liverpool will severely stress European terminals and supply chains as the peak season for imports approaches.

Eight days of strikes in the last week of August brought Felixstowe, which is responsible for handling 48 percent of the UK’s container goods, to a standstill.

The new action has been called for eight days from 07:00 Tuesday, Sept.
