The Port of Felixstowe issued the following statement to PTI: “A sink hole has appeared on Berth 6. Our engineering consultants are investigating the cause”.

In March Hutchison Ports Port of Felixstowe broke its own record for the most containers handled on a single ship for the third time in two months.
