Water level on the Rhine…
According to the forecast of the electronic inland waterway information system ELWIS (“Elektronisches Wasserstrassen Informationssystem”) www.elwis.de, in the next few days the Kaub Gauge level is expected to fall below the 0.71 m mark.
This will further reduce the loading capacities of barges. Unfortunately there is already a shortage of available load capacities, and no substantial rainfall is forecast, so that no improvement in the situation can be expected in the short term.
The operators are thus extending their Low Water surcharge, which we can send upon request. The Low Water surcharge is only made for full (loaded) containers.
We shall continue to make every effort to transport your containers punctually and in good time.
As a alternative you can also use our train connections, for more information www.distrirail.nl
