To our Valued Customers,
Since Wednesday January 23rd, we are facing industrial actions by the stevedores of Rotterdam Short Sea Terminal (RST).
All waterside operations had ceased Wednesday 12 am until Thursday morning 7 am. Although operations resumed on Thursday, further operation stoppages may continue to occur at any time without pre-warning and there is no indication when the dispute will be solved.
Consequently we are expecting heavy disruption to our services and we are continuously monitoring the situation. Based on further developments, we may take appropriate measures such as the omission of calls at RST and/or operating at alternative quays. This will be advised if decisions are taken and confirmed and we are looking for the best possible transport solutions and the least disruption of our services.
However, MacAndrews reserves the right to discharge cargo at alternative terminals at short or with no notice and implement respective cost recovery charges.
We do regret the current situation and we can only assure you that we are requesting all parties to find a solution as quickly as possible to avoid further disruption to services.
Should you need any clarification please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your continued support.
