Our holiday season service

We would like to give you more information about our services during the summer holiday period, in the months of July and August.

During these months, we’ll continue our usual service as much as possible. However, this holiday season has an impact on our normal transport plan and therefore also on the running times. For example, the month of August is considered a holiday month in southern European countries. During this month, due to the decreasing number of shipments, the number of shipments from our platforms to the South is more limited. During this month, shipments are also announced beforehand. This to avoid a second delivery of cargo during the summer closures of companies, as much as possible.

During the months of July and August there are also additional driving bans in several countries on Saturdays and during the so-called "black" weekends. We’ll do the necessary and arrange our driving times as good as possible to limit the impact on the running times. So we try to respect the running times maturities as much as possible. A delay of at least 1 day can’t be avoided in some cases.
