Congestion

Dear valued Customer,

As it has been some time since the last advisory and I want to give you an update concerning the congestion at the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp.

More than 60% of the seavessels arrive out-of-window. The number of vessels and the volumes to be handled, lead to peaks in demand. The capacity of the deepsea terminals is not sufficient to handle this situation.

The availability of empty containers appears to be a problem as well. The empties are re-routed from the deepsea terminals to the depots, which results in higher demand for timeslots.

  • Antwerp 33 hours
  • Rotterdam 50 hours
