Congestion situation in Rotterdam and Antwerp
donderdag 8 juni 2017
Reference is made to previous notifications with regards to the situation at the container terminals in the
deepsea ports Rotterdam and Antwerp. With this update we will inform you about the recent developments.
The barge operations are still suffering with daily delays. These delays still have a huge effect on our sailing
schedules as well as on the utilization of our barges.
Naturally we already developed and introduced some measures to avoid the negative influence on our daily operations as much as possible for this moment. These self created solutions affect the cost structure of the
daily business. Following this we want to alert you that we cannot avoid consequences of the current
conditions, because we have no direct influence on the situation. We ask you for your understanding, that
we cannot accept any responsibility for additional cost like demurrage, detention, extra handling,
transhipment, truck delivery, etc.
The coming days we will consider the current situation in the deepsea ports and will keep you up to date if
any further actions are required to continue our liner services in our European Network.
With kind regards,
Danser Group Management
