Present Low Water situation on the Rhine

Since hardly any rain is expected for the next two weeks, the Low Water situation on the Rhine will become more acute in calendar week 42.

This morning the level at the Kaub gauge fell to 72 cm and is continuing to fall.

We are continuing to make every effort to put our fleet to the best possible use, within the possibilities of inland navigation.

Please book in good time so that we can coordinate the transport of the volume of containers with the additionally chartered tonnage. We will be glad to inform you on request of the surcharges applying in the extreme low water situation.

Basis for the gauge level: Level measured at 5:00 am (CET) according to the Electronic Waterway Information System www.elwis.de. This information is also published on our website www.contargo.net
