Unfortunately, we have to confirm that the gauges at Maxau and Koblenz have risen above the Mark II level. Above this level navigation has had to be stopped, meaning that the transport of containers from all regions south of Bonn/Koblenz is affected.

If you have questions or require further information our personnel will be glad to help you.
