Situation Gothenburg Port

21 Feb, 2017

The problems in the port of Gothenburg is not solved. The strike announced for this week was called off at the last moment. The export containers are still affected as the port tries to restrict the admission of export goods to apply only to goods that have an imminent closing-time. The situation in the port also creates turbulence for the import containers, which in turn generates additional costs as waiting hours and demurrage. We have received indications that the shipping lines will introduce a congestion fee, valid from teh first of March. We hope for your understanding as these costs are directly related to the prevailing conflict situation in Gothenburg port, and nothing we can influence.


Scanlink wish you a nice working & winter holiday week!
