UPDATE: Congestion in Antwerp and Rotterdam
At present, average waiting times for the handling of our barges in the seaports are:
Antwerp: 48 hours
Rotterdam: 78 hours
The present substantial increases in the price of gasoil (Barge), diesel (Truck/Terminal) and electricity (Rail/Terminal), face our hinterland network and our service providers with great financial challenges. In order to be able to maintain our accustomed service, from 21 March 2022 we will have to introduce an Emergency Surcharge.
