Dear business partner
Unfortunately we have been notified of a national strike in Belgium on February, 13, 2019. The whole country will be impacted by a nationwide shutdown of public services including schools, public transportation and ports.
It has been confirmed to us that the dock labourers will participate. We expect the roads leading up to our offices and terminals as well as the actual terminals will be completely blocked.
The strike will continue for 24 hours, starting at 6.00 AM on the 13th and ending the following day at 6.00 PM. All terminals in the port of Zeebrugge will be out of operations and incoming vessels will not be able to berth, load or unload. Trucks, trains and barges will not be admitted.
