FIRST CARGO INFORMS
The corona virus, covid-19 continues to spread and affects humans and their activities more or less all over the world now. We in the transportation sector are no exemption.
We have taken whatever measure we ca to minimize the consequences for our transporters and their drivers, including providing them with masks, hand cleaning and information as how to proceed when loading, unloading, having breaks etc. All this to secure a safe transport for them, for your cargo and your clients.
Considering the risk of being infected by the virus we cannot force the drivers to go by ferries from Sweden to Germany and vice versa when single cabins cannot be guaranteed. Should this be the case we will go via Denmark, bridge and short ferry. This is considerably much more expensive. This in combination with the fact that many parking places are overcrowded with no means of hygienic facilities, areas might be closed by authorities, causing us detours, gives us no other choice but to compensate us the incurred extra costs.
As from W12, March 16 – 2020, we will charge a supplement of 7,50 % on the freight rates, Min 7,60 € Max 375 €, all this to try to maintain the best possible service for you and your clients.
The supplement is valid in our Intereuropean land transports and effective until further notice. These costs are subject to changes which might occur with short notice.
We, as all, hope that the situation will go back to normal as soon as possible.
Any questions you might have please do not hesitate to contact us, undersigned or your contact person.
