Upcoming Strike within DB Cargo AG Network

Green Cargo issues a notice to our customers regarding the anticipated consequences of the impending strike within the DB Cargo AG network.

The German Locomotive Drivers' Union (GDL) has once again declared a strike within the freight transport sector, scheduled to take place from 6:00 AM today, December 7, 2023, until 10:00 PM on December 8, 2023. Despite proactive measures taken, the expected disruptions, exacerbated by the approaching winter in southern Germany, are likely to result in significant limitations within the DB Cargo AG network.

Green Cargo is diligently monitoring the evolving situation and maintains close communication with DB Cargo AG. Our team is committed to keeping our stakeholders informed about specific impacts on railway transportation. DB Cargo AG is actively working to minimize the potential consequences of the GDL strike and will continue to provide updates to Green Cargo.

In response to the forthcoming strike, Green Cargo is invoking Force Majeure for all traffic affected. We will keep our customers abreast of any changes that may affect their railway transports. For detailed information concerning your shipments, please reach out to your regular customer service contact.

For further insights into the ongoing labor movement, we encourage you to visit the DB Press Blog.

We appreciate your understanding and collaboration during this period.

Best regards, Green Cargo
