Moving to North America – Houston Ship Channel Closed

For customers planning on moving to North America, Abels Moving Services have been updated by our agents about the closure of the Houston Ship Channel.

On Saturday 22nd March 2014, two ships collided in the Houston Ship Channel near Texas City in Texas. The U.S. Coast Guard is handling the coordination and ongoing emergency response efforts.

As a result, the Houston Ship Channel remains closed to all vessels until further notice. It is unclear how long the Houston Ship Channel will remain closed.

For customers moving to North America please call your Abels customer liaison on their direct line or call head office on +44(0)1842 816600 or email
