We have to inform you about a stopped operation of all freight trains in electric traction in a transport-wise important part of Germany due to a lack of traction energy in DB Netz power supply system. Currently, all METRANS trains are affected. The expected end of the cessation – 9:30 a.m. – was confirmed and the traffic of electric freight trains has already been restored. Unfortunately, the traffic closure comes with several operational difficulties that may have an impact on the quality of the transport service, therefore on the transit time of your shipments.
We monitor the situation very carefully and will inform you about any further closures and limitations on the network.
