A container ship collided with a lock gate in the Kiel Canal on 19 February 2018. The collision resulted in serious damage to the gate and repair work can last several weeks.
The majority ocean freight shipments to and from Finland go through the Kiel canal. Along with the wintry weather conditions and the ongoing Rotterdam congestion, the repair works can cause further delays to both FCL and LCL shipments.
Please contact our ocean freight department for further details.
