Kiel Canal traffic situation

A high work-load in the Kiel Canal causes wait for entering vessels

The Kiel Canal announces wait

The Kiel canal (where our vessels pass) is currently under re-construction and has a lower capacity than what it usually has, which might cause delays in our liner traffic. The lowered capacity in combination with the normal amount of vessels passing through, has lead to the announcement that waiting times for entering the canal is needed. The wait from Kiel - Holtenau is up to about 10 hours, and from Brunsbuettel around 4 hours. 

If this wait affects our traffic or ability to deliver on time, the vessel schedule will be updated and affected customers contacted.
