Warning strikes in Hamburg and Bremerhaven


More warning strikes in the ports of Hamburg and Bremerhaven have been announced, starting with the early shift on Thursday 14 July 2022 and ending on Saturday morning. Massive handling problems are expected at the container terminals, and the terminal operators have also indicated that no trucks will be handled during the strike action.

As well as the already-existing handling delays of several hours, these additional tailbacks will continue to have an impact in the following days.
