Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) negotiations between terminals and unions have heralded go-slow action across the Port of Rotterdam since Tuesday 6th December 2022, including at the Hutchison Ports Delta II and Maasvlakte II terminals.

A.P. Moller – Maersk would like to inform customers that an agreement has now been reached between the concerned parties and operations at Hutchison Ports Delta II returned to normal service levels early this morning (22nd December 2022).

Considering we are in the middle of Christmas and New Year closures, we expect all services to resume their normal calls and windows from the first week of January.

At Maasvlakte II, operations normalised on Friday 16th December 2022. Union and terminal continue discussions in good faith, however the situation could change at short notice. We will keep customers informed of the latest developments as soon as possible.

Since the go-slow action was announced, Maersk teams have been working hard to minimise the impact on customers by drawing up a number of contingency plans and diverting cargo to other European ports.

Please note that if your cargo was affected by previous measures, you will receive specific information regarding the recovery plan from the Maersk team.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your local Customer Experience representative.

Thank you for your trust and understanding during this time and we look forward to continuing to serve your logistics needs in future.
