    Industrial actions end on Monday 8th of April

    The industrial action that affected Finnish export and import transports in March ends on 8th of April at 6.00 AM.

    Four weeks of political industrial action have added congestion in ports and increased the imbalance in the fleet. During the industrial action, trucks and drivers have been accompanying trailers on board. Also, the industrial action has halted the unloading and loading of sea containers in ports. Our customers should be prepared that it may take several weeks to clear congestion and return to a completely normal situation.

    We will prioritize products that are important to society, such as medicines and food. The exceptional situation surcharge for all DB Schenker land transports entering or leaving Finland will remain in force until Tuesday, April 9.  

    System Freight

    After the industrial action ends, our aim is to return to normal transport schedules as soon as possible. We give priority to our performance-guaranteed DB SCHENKER system premium product for both domestic and international transports. 

    Direct Freight

    The end of industrial action is expected to cause congestion on our direct transports. To cover the additional costs of decongestion, we will introduce an indefinite capacity surcharge on our international part load and full load transports from Wednesday, April 10 onwards.

    If you want to ensure time-critical transport for your domestic part and full loads, please ask for a quote for a separately priced DB SCHENKER direct express product. 

    Our digital tracking services are here to help you – follow also our strike communications  

    Due to the industrial action, our customer service may experience occasional congestion. We therefore recommend using  our digital services  and customer service robot  Betty as a priority. Please remember that all DB Schenker’s strike updates can be found from our Pulse blog
