Update – storm front “Xavier”, October 20, 2017

Karina BranayaiOperational

We would like to inform about new development. Situation with Bremerhaven is not improving, rail infrastructure is massiv overloaded, which influences shunting trips, some shunting already stopped. Our own ROLAND SPEDITION rail systems suffer heavily, resulting in some short notice train cancellations. Presently, we do not see any recovery on short notice.

This general situation is also effecting our own Hamburg rail system, in order to keep round trips, it could be possible that we dispatch on short notice Export units earlier than your instructions.

We regret these circumstances which have an impact on the logistic process in total however, this is an act of nature without any chance of influence from our side. We hope for you and your customers to come back to “normal” and to produce the high standard of quality very soon.

We would like to draw your attention that we are not liable for any costs resulting from this severe storm.

Your Team at Roland Spedition
