German lockdown effects on freight transport

Due to the coronavirus situation, the German government has decided that a nationwide lockdown will start on 16 December 2020. All stores, except grocery shops selling essential items will be closed until 10.1.2021. Freight transportation is expected to continue normally, with the exception of changes to transportation and loading schedules caused by the Christmas and  New Year holiday season.

We remind export shippers to ensure, prior to placing a shipping order, that the shipment can be received at the destination. If the shipment cannot be delivered, special arrangements and additional costs will be incurred.
