The freight market is already characterized by large shipping volumes and an extremely difficult loading space situation. For the coming autumn and Christmas business, we are expecting further increases in volumes and an even tighter situation for both domestic and international traffic.
In addition to these challenges, we are facing a special situation in week 44. Due to the one-time federal holiday on the 500th Reformation Day on 31.Oktober. and the non-federal holiday on 01.November we will have a 3-day week, which will be used as a holiday week with bridging days in many companies.
This fact will increase the existing freight market problems.
We are already working hard to expand our capacities - but we would like to ask you for your support. If you have the opportunity to influence your customers' order behavior, move scheduled transports before or after week 44, or extend the normal transit times, the overall situation could be relaxed.
Only together we will be able master the challenge.
We thank you for your understanding and are at your disposal for any questions.
