Level of the River Rhine has increased

3 Jan 2018

Total blockage

The level of the River Rhine has increased during the last few days. Due to severe weather conditions further increases are expected.

On Friday 5th of January 2018 the level Maxau is expected to exceed the so-called ‘mark II’.
This will have as a consequence that a total blockage will occur for all barge traffic on the Upper Rhine Section.

It is expected that all export and import sailings will be blocked or delayed this weekend.
