    Strikes affect DB Schenker transports in Finland

    The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions (SAK) and its affiliated unions have announced industrial actions on Thursday December 14, 2023, in which the Finnish Transport Workers' Union (AKT) is also involved. According to information from the AKT today, Schenker Oy will be one of the companies affected by the strike if the industrial action takes place.

    The possible industrial actions will slow down the transport operations of Schenker Oy. We are trying to keep our production running as usual, but due to staff shortages there may be delays in transports. We will prioritize the transports of pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs and other products that are important to society. Due to transport prioritization and disruptions, the DB SCHENKER system premium performance guarantee for groupage shipments and other pre-scheduled pick-ups and deliveries cannot be ensured as scheduled. 

    If planned industrial actions take place, they will affect import and export transports on the Swedish, German, Estonian and Polish shipping routes. During the strike, there will be no loading or unloading of trailers and this will most likely cause delays.

    Due to the industrial action, our customer service may experience occasional congestion on Thursday. We therefore recommend using our digital services and our customer service robot Betty as a priority
