Strike in the Port of Antwerp
On Monday, 30.01.2012 from 06:00 am the whole workforce of the port of Antwerp will stop work completely until Tuesday, 31.01.20 12, 06:00 am. The strike is a protest against tax changes which the Belgian government plans to introduce.
Thus vessels arriving at the port on Monday will neither be loaded nor unloaded.
For this reason, barges travelling downstream on Friday, 27.02.2012 towards Antwerp will be unloaded on Tuesday, 31.02.2012. Barges which would normally travel upstream on Monday, 30.01.2012 will be rescheduled for Tuesday, 31.01.2012.
Thank you for your understanding.
