We at A.P. Moller – Maersk would like to inform you of a confirmed 24-hour workforce strike across German terminals, after the latest round of CLA negotiations between trade union ver.di and the Central Association of German Seaport Companies (ZDS) failed to reach a successful conclusion.

The strike will run from 6:00am on Thursday 23 June 2022 until 6:00am on Friday 24 June 2022, directly affecting our operations in Bremerhaven, Hamburg and Wilhemshaven.

At this stage, Maersk will absorb a full stoppage for rail, road and ocean freight for both import and export across our German terminals for the duration of the strike.

We are not planning any alterations to services at present and plan to return to business as usual serving your global logistics needs from 6:00am on Friday 24 June 2022.

Following the conclusion of the strike, we will assess the impact of the stoppage and will communicate any necessary service changes with you as soon as possible.

In the interest of minimising any further disruption to your supply chain, Maersk we will be keeping a close eye on developments up to and during the next round of meetings between trade union ver.di and ZDS, acknowledging that further strike action is possible.

Our teams are here to serve you, so if you have any questions please reach out to your local Customer Experience team.
