Expect Service Delays during Peak Moving Season in Germany

June 05, 2018

The truck-driver shortage in Germany is having a major impact on container imports. There are simply too many ships arriving, for which there are not enough drivers to transport. This is resulting in delayed pickups, deliveries, and additional costs.

Consequently, it is taking approximately 10 days following customs clearance before a container can be picked up at the port. We expect these conditions to persist throughout the peak moving season.

Your Arpin service team will be contacting all customers impacted by the driver shortage to set up individual contingency plans. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will do everything possible to minimize delays and manage the expectations of the relocating families to the best of our ability.
