During the ongoing protest of the trade unions, the stevedores have stopped overtime work and changes on work shifts in Finland. This affects the unloading of trailers arriving on ships on Sundays. The announced length of the protest is from October 8 until 28, 2018.
To minimize the effects of the protest we will send truck tractors to Travemünde to fetch the trailers and drive those to our terminal during the arrival Sunday.
Because of the personnel and equipment costs of these exceptional measures, we will activate the Surcharge for exceptional measures (5 €/shipment as of October 17) for the DB SCHENKERsystem shipments from Austria, Germany, France, Benelux countries and Italy regardless of the weekday of arrival. The surcharge is in effect until the end of protest. It will not be charged retroactively.
