Petition Action

Help Manufacturing and Furniture Industry with Inflated Foreign Shipping Costs

Petition Details

We need the government to implement anti trust measures and increase steps to increase vessel supply. The cost of shipping has increase from $2,800 to above and beyond $13,000 dollars per container. This means that companies are passing the inflation of costs onto their customers, the British public

Additional Information

If this increase continues it's going to send inflation higher and put UK furniture companies out of business.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Petitions need to call on the Government or Parliament to take a specific action.

We understand that you are concerned about shipping costs for certain industries, but we're not sure exactly what you'd like the Government or Parliament to do about this.

You could start a new petition explaining clearly what you would like the Government or Parliament to do.

The Competition and Markets Authority is responsible for investigating competition or market problems. You can find out how to notify the CMA if you think competition law might have been broken or you're concerned there’s a problem in a market sector here: www.gov.uk/guidance/tell-the-cma-about-a-competition-or-market-problem
