Although the adverse weather in the UK and France over the past week has mostly cleared, Portugal and Italy are now experiencing severe weather which is threatening to delay shipments.
1st February 2019:
Although the adverse weather across France and the UK has mostly cleared, both Portugal and Italy are now also experiencing disruptions to shipments caused by extreme weather.
Large parts of northern Italy have experienced heavy snowfalls, with the snowfall looking to continue over the next few days. As a result, road traffic through large areas of Northern Italy is severely delayed and delivery times in the area are likely to be slowed.
The west coast of Portugal is experiencing similar extreme weather as northern Italy. As a result, large parts of the west coast of Portugal are under a red weather warning. Again, shipments through the west coast of Portugal will be disrupted, with pick-up severely delayed, and road movements in the area being slowed due to the icy conditions.
Rhenus will update customers with any changes and we will do our utmost to maintain normal service where possible.
Customers wishing to receive information about their shipments related to this weather warning should contact their local Rhenus office. Local Rhenus branch details can be found here.
