Congestion in Antwerp
In Antwerp barges are having to wait up to 96 hours for processing at present. Just now is very difficult to estimate the time barges will spend in the seaport, although we are making every effort to limit the delays by early notification.
The large numbers of seagoing vessels and the shortage of personnel in the holiday months are the reasons for the tight situation at some terminals.
We ask for your understanding and will inform you promptly of any changes.
