Latest information about train delays from/to the ports of Hamburg, Bremerhaven, and Koper (updated 02.11.2021)

Update 02.11.2021:

Following our previous operational reports, we are sending you another newsletter regarding the current situation in railway transport.

Unfortunately, the unfavorable operational situation on the railway corridor from the northern German ports remains unchanged, and current train delays both in import and export directions from/to Hamburg and Bremerhaven are still up to 24 hours. 

We would like to remind you that due to a planned closure in Decin from November 10th to November 15th, 2021, it is necessary to count with a longer transit time for transports via terminal Usti nad Labem.

Train delays from/to the port of Koper were successfully reduced to 6 hours. This time we were forced to cancel another 3 pairs of trains.

Below you can find a notice from the Slovenian Railways about continuous delays due to infrastructural operation.

When planning your shipments, it is still necessary to take into account more challenging handling of METRANS trains than usual, as well as extended transit times from/to these ports.

We are monitoring the situation and we would like to assure you that we are trying to minimize the impact of the train delays with all our efforts.

In case of any questions regarding the actual planning of your transport orders and transit times, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Department.

Update 25.10.2021:

Following previous operational reports, we are publishing another update on the operational situation.

Unfortunately, the unfavorable operational situation on the railway corridor from northern German ports continues. Current train delays both in import and export directions from/to Hamburg, Bremerhaven is still up to 24 hours. In addition to construction works in the port of Hamburg at the Waltershof station, in combination with high occupancy of the railway infrastructure in the port, the trains are being stopped on the way already from tonight October 24. / 25. 2021 and thus arise significant delays in export direction. Of course, this will also have an impact on consequent departures in import direction. Currently, 4 trains are affected, about which our colleagues from customer service depts. will inform you as always.

We believe that the situation in the port will be managed gradually and it will be possible to transport containers without further delays.

Slight improvement happened from/to Koper port, where current train delays are up to 16 hours, for which reason we were forced to cancel another 2 pairs of trains.

Below you can find an overview of planned closures regarding the train connection with the port of Koper.

When planning your shipments, it is still necessary to take into account more challenging handling of METRANS trains as usual, as well as extended transit times from/to these ports.
