It is planned to resume the loading of Contargo Network Logistics trains at 16:30 today. However, due to the weather conditions and the potential handling backlog, further delays have to be expected.

Since Contargo Network Logistics trains normally arrive over the weekend in Hof and Glauchau, however, we hope we shall be able to make good the delays, and will be able to carry out deliveries on Monday as planned.

We ask for your understanding in view of the difficulties caused by the weather, and will keep you up to date on the latest situation.
