The Loadstar suggests that shippers avoid the strike-affected port of Hamburg.
Yesterday at 5:30 pm, trade union workers in Hamburg's port initiated a strike due to dissatisfaction with their wages. As a result, pilots have been unable to direct big ships to the docks along the River Elbe as usual.
According to the most recent update provided by VesselsValue AIS earlier today around noon, it appears that there are approximately seven containerships currently anchored in the North Sea or waiting at the mouth of the Elbe. Additionally, there are another eight vessels currently docked at berths.
Officials are cautioning that additional work stoppages may occur and are suggesting that freight carriers transporting essential goods should explore alternate ports to transport their cargo.
There will be talks happening between the employee groups and bosses for three days starting on March 27th. Ver.di and EVG, two worker unions, plan to share news today about the likelihood of more protests related to transportation.
