We have been informed that the UNION called for an unannounced strike action in Germany – starting first shift this morning – to put additional pressure on prior the 3rd negotiation round.

The strike will affect the Port of Hamburg, the Port of Bremen, as well as Bremerhaven, Brake and Emden. The strikes in Hamburg will begin on June 17, 2024, at 5:00 a.m. and, depending on the port location, will last for approximately 24 or 48 hours, until late in the evening of June 17 or June 18, 2024.

This will have widespread implications on our network, with multiple vessels already planned to be worked today / tomorrow. With current outlook on the vessels, we do expect a knock-on effect for all vessels. Consequently, this will cause further delays!

Rest assured, that we are doing everything possible to minimize the impact of the situation.
