Gothenburg terminal lockout
A mirror lock out at APM Terminals in Gothenburg has been announced today, effective from 19th of May until 30th of June. During this period APM Terminals will be open from 7am to 4pm on working days and on weekends their standard opening hours will apply. APM Terminals have announced that their service will be limited during this period.
The mirror lock out has been announced as a consequence of the ongoing conflict between Hamnarbetarförbundets avdelning 4 and APM Terminals.
We have been impacted by limited capacity at the port of Gothenburg for a longer period of time and after today’s announcement we have decided to implement a booking stop from Gothenburg. The booking stop will be effective immediately and remain until we have a clear overview of how the announced mirror lock out will impact our capacity.
Meanwhile we are working hard to find alternative solutions to cater to your cargo and we are investigating all possibilities to increase our capacity from other Swedish ports. We will revert to you as soon as we have more information to share.
