When is my container going to be examined?

You can check the location of your container on the Port of Felixstowe website http://www.portoffelixstowe.co.uk/haulier/

If the code is TTYCOLD then the container is at the TCEF/ coldstore (Temperature Controlled Examination Facility) being examined.

If the code is TTY70SH then the container is at 70 Shed the ambient examination facility.

Codes with a Q mean that the container is stored at the dedicated examination storage facility.  Containers are often brought here the night before the examination is due, however, this does not guarantee that your container will be examined next day and you may wish to check with the relevant examination shed to find out when your examination is scheduled.

To find out which of the examination facilities to contact, you can check on Destin8 if you have access to it.  Under the heading port health hold there will be the following information:-
