Winter weather in the Netherlands

Update 11 February 2021

Thanks to the snowplows and gritters, the main roads in the Netherlands are passable again for our trucks. Unfortunately, there are still roads near some loading and unloading addresses that are less passable. We also have to deal with many road works due to emergency repairs of the asphalt. This is causing delays in the collection and delivery of shipments. We ask for your understanding. We will do everything to limit the delay and inform you when possible. 

If you have any questions, please contact your account manager or our customer service team

Update 9 February 2021

Fortunately, we can report that all our trucks left this morning to load and unload shipments in the Netherlands. Unfortunately, due to the situation that arose yesterday, we have a backlog. We are doing everything possible to catch up as soon as possible. 

Starting tomorrow (Wednesday, February 10) we will also load and unload ADR shipments again.

If you have any questions, please contact your account manager or our customer service team

Update 8 February 2021


Due to the current weather conditions in the Netherlands and the heavy snowfall at our site in 's-Heerenberg, many trucks did not leave this morning. Currently, about 30% of our fleet is on the road but we are experiencing many problems here as well.

We have therefore decided to postpone deliveries and collections by 1 day and that there will also be no export departures tonight.  

In addition, tomorrow (Tuesday, February 9) we will also not deliver or pick up any dangerous goods (ADR) shipments. This is according to the regulations of the transport of dangerous goods from the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate:

The trucks that are still on the road in the Netherlands will try as much as possible to deliver and pick up the shipments. According to the latest information, they are experiencing a lot of hindrance due to the bad situation on the road.

At this moment we already receive many calls from companies who do not want to have shipments picked up today. We ask you to share this information with us.

We will keep you informed.
