At present, various factors are causing logistics in Germany to run out of control.
1) During the Corona lockdown, capacities in the logistics sector were also cut back; after the lockdown, the volume of shipments increased abruptly.
2) The forwarding companies are suffering from a lack of staff, both among drivers and in the service sector, caused by Corona measures that are still in place or are currently still in the aftermath.
3) The current holiday season is beginning.
Long goods hauliers are more affected than pallet hauliers and local transport is more affected than long-distance transport.
In summary, this means that you have probably already experienced it through your own shipments: We are able to deliver, but the forwarders are not playing along. Time-critical shipments cannot be carried out via the normal groupage route, but only by courier / direct transport. Please contact us in good time and do not count on the known transit times for groupage shipments. Even though we hope that the situation will improve soon, we assume that we will have to live with this for a while.
