05.12.2013 | In the Netherlands the ECT Delta Terminal in Rotterdam has already stopped operations due to the severe weather conditions. An update on further developments has been announced for 17:00 at the latest.
In Germany the storm depression "Xaver" is continuing to build up and severe impacts are expected in northern and central Germany. Today and tomorrow strong gales and hurricane-strength winds are expected. Handling with cranes at the terminals will very probably be affected by the weather situation. There may be interruptions in crane operation and processing times at the terminals may be longer. According to the rail authorities, service on some sections may be interrupted causing trains to be delayed.
First effects of the weather situation are already reported in the Port of Hamburg: the depot for empty containers Burchardkai has now been closed. Eurogate is stopping loading operations this afternoon.
We will continue to keep you informed of the latest situation.
