On the 7th and 8th July, 2017, the Global Heads of State & Government, as well as its delegations from 35 states will take part in the G20 Summit.
The City of Hamburg will therefore be taking extensive security measures. Considerable traffic obstructions/delays/jams are expected in the week from 3rd to 9th July, which will also affect the port area and its operations.
In addition to this, several political groups have announced activities and demonstrations with the intent to disrupt the port operations.
It is expected that on Friday, 07th July, there will be demonstrations in the port area, as advised by the police authorities of Hamburg. This can lead to considerable problems or delays for departures/arrivals from and to the various CFS/Packing stations – as the majority are situated in the affected area.
The exact developments and impact of hosting the G20 Summit in Hamburg cannot be foreseen as they are beyond our control. It is also impossible to predict the extent of delays that will occur during the transport process. We will naturally liaise with all parties whom may be affected with shipments to/from/transiting Hamburg to keep you updated if any delays are expected.
Please do not hesitate to contact our staff should you have any concerns, or require additional information.
