Exceptional Event Report News 13 Dec 2017

We would like to proactively inform you that the entry ports into Germany are experiencing backlogs of shipments due to seasonal high volumes.  The situation is further heightened by continued consequence from FCS strikes the past weeks.

The current situation at the Frankfurt airport remains strained and critical due to ongoing strike actions of the ground handling agents.


In additional, heavy snowfall caused flight cancellations and delays at numerous European airports on 11 Dec 2017.

The following airports were most affected:
Frankfurt am Main (FRA)
Munich Franz Josef Strauß (MUC)
Dusseldorf (DUS)
Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS)
London Heathrow (LHR)
London Stansted (STN)
London Luton (LTN)
Birmingham (BHX)

The wintry weather conditions also caused widespread disruptions in road traffic, particularly across central England and northern Wales as well as in Germany and the Netherlands.


We do seek your kind understanding that there may be delays in customs inspection and clearance as well as the final mail delivery during this period.
