The Low Water situation on the Rhine remains critical. Due to the continuing drought, in the coming days the gauges at Duisburg-Ruhrort and Emmerich as well as Kaub will continue to fall to levels within a critical range. The Duisburg-Ruhrort Gauge could even fall below the 151 cm mark in the next few days. The Emmerich Gauge has already reached the zero mark, and according to forecasts will also fall further.

This development leaves us no choice but to further adjust the Low Water Surcharge. Please find in the attached table the Low Water surcharges that will apply until further notice for the relevant water levels.

We wish to inform you that until further notice, some schedules will not be able to be adhered to, and departures and arrivals will have to be coordinated on a case-by-case basis.

Subsequent costs resulting from missed departures of sea ships or late delivery of containers are beyond the sphere of our responsibility, since due to the circumstances of Low Water we are not answerable for them.

We will keep you continually informed of further developments. For operational questions, please get in touch with your usual contacts at the locations or in the sales team.

We must point out that for gauge levels of 80 cm or below in Kaub, 180 cm or below in Duisburg-Ruhrort and 30 cm or below in Emmerich, we no longer have an obligation to transport. Nevertheless, we will do everything possible to transport your containers.

We ask for your understanding.
