Marken Operational Update: Multiple Airport Strikes in Germany
Marken is closely monitoring the ongoing developments of an expected day-long strike, which will commence on Friday, February 17, by The Verdi Trade Union in Germany. The strike was called for by the public service, aviation security and ground handling service workers.
We understand there will be significant disruptions and delays to most German airports (FRA, MUC, STR, DTM, HAM, HAJ & BRE) and surrounding regions. This also includes other types of transport, such as rail, local transport services, and the handling and release of imports into Germany as well.
Please note, that Marken has implemented contingency plans, leveraging our UPS network, and diverting exports to other airports, to avoid impacts wherever possible. Our team is proactively working with our clients to provide alternative arrangements and our Customer Service team will communicate any necessary updates to clients as this ongoing situation progresses.
For any immediate questions about a particular shipment, please contact your local Marken branch or business professional.
We will watch and manage this situation very closely within our network to reduce or negate impact to clients and their shipments.
