As you probably have noticed, the problems in the Swedish ports continue and the recent days' development has led to an escalation of the conflict. Since no agreement has been reached by the parties, the Employer's lockout from next week during the period March 6th to July 31st is answered by the Swedish Dockworkers Union with a strike action in all Swedish ports from March 6th. What this implyes is difficult to know at the moment and it remains to be seen whether any solution or change of situation will take place before the strike starts next week. As for now the situation looks like this:

Gävle - no impact
Åhus - no impact
Norrköping - little impact
Gothenburg - little impact
Stockholm - higly impacted
Helsingborg - higly impacted

We will keep you informed of the development.

About 40 containers are still missing from MSC Zoe. In total, 281 containers fell overboard in the hard weather in early January. Some containers still missing contained dangerous goods such as lithium batteries. It remains to be seen if any of the goods flow ashore along the Swedish coast in a couple of weeks. Scanlink had no cargo on board MSC Zoe.


We would like to remind you of the Chinese New Year in early February. 2019 it is celebrated between February 4th and 8th when China, as usual, shuts down almost all its activities. Please contact us if you have any gods planned during this period so we can check what opportunities there are.
This year we celebrate the pig's year!
