Backlog due to weather and strikes

07. December 2023 | Operative Infos

Restriction of rail traffic

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


Important updates

  • Due to the weather, export trains have been parked in the Fulda area since 06.12.2023, as a result export trains could not leave Austria.
  • The train driver’s union (GDL) has again called for a strike, starting in freight transport on 07.12.2023, 6 p.m. to 08.12.2023, 10 p.m.
  • Depending on the participation of the train drivers and dispatchers organized in this union disruptions in train traffic are to be expected.
  • Delays due to backlog effects are to be expected as a consequence and train cancellations cannot be ruled out.

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.
