UPDATE: Congestion in Antwerp and Rotterdam
At present, average waiting times for the handling of our barges in the seaports are:
Antwerp: 94 hours
Rotterdam: 128 hours
At present a deep depression is moving towards Western Europe. From Wednesday,16 February to Sunday, 20 February 2022 there is a danger of gale-force winds reaching speeds of 105 to 119 km/h. Due to the storms there will be handling delays in the seaports. Work at the seaport terminals is stopped if winds reach a speed of more than 20 m/s. Storms and gale-force winds are forecast for Germany for the same time period.
We therefore wish to warn you in advance that there may be restrictions in terminal and transport operations (rail, barge) over the next few days which will cause delays.
We ask for your understanding and will keep you promptly informed.
