Heavy Storms Last Week in Europe Delay Freight: Impacts Expected to be Felt into This Week 2017-06-27

Heavy storms in parts of eastern and central Europe last week caused delays to some freight movements, including in Europe's largest freight market, Germany.
With storms reported in several parts of eastern Europe, including Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Poland, intermodal specialist Far East Land Bridge (FELB) warned customers that extreme weather in Germany had created difficulties for some rail and freight operations.
FELB said the Hamburg terminal was "extremely crowded" according to information from Deutsche Bahn Cargo (the German railroad), "and there is no forecast available for when the tracks/station/terminal will resume normal work". It said all export trains there would be delayed.
"Please be prepared that all trains to and from Germany will face heavy delays this weekend and most likely next week," the company warned customers on Friday.
