Acceptance regulation CTA

23. February 2022 | Operative Infos

Restriction of rail traffic

We want to inform you about the current situation and effects.


Important updates

  • As a result of the storms of the past few days, we were informed by HHLA Terminal CTA about an acceptance regulation that only the number of export containers can be delivered in the same amount of import containers are loaded. Otherwise, export trains will not be accepted by the terminal.
  • due to the continuing massive imbalance (more exports than imports via CTA), this measure means a restriction of our CTA rail capacities by around 30%.
  • Alternatively, we can check a fee-based truck transfer in Hamburg in order to achieve the specified cut-off.
  • If the transfer is not possible due to capacity bottlenecks in Hamburg, we will depart CTA export containers from Austria with the next available rail capacity.
  • The implementation of this measure is effective immediately and is temporary until revoked.

Delivery times or fixed dates cannot be guaranteed; these require unhindered transport by rail or road traffic.

As a precaution, we would like to point out that ROLAND Spedition accepts no liability for costs resulting from these events. Your contact person will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your transports.
