Restriction of rail traffic

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


Important updates

  • The heavy storm effects still significant, around 6,000 kilometers of railway lines in Germany were damaged.
  • very delayed start-up of railway operations due to infrastructure overload, damage to overhead lines in the Hanover area, stop-and-go traffic in northern Germany.
  • First normalization of rail traffic expected by the end of the current week at the earliest.
  • Heavy container export backlog of over 1.000 TEU due to numerous train cancellations.
  • Persistent delays are still to be expected.

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