Notification date: 04.09.2015
The Bergen-Oslo Rail line is still closed, but is expected to open up again on Saturday morning. The Southern Norway Line (Oslo-Kristiansand) opened up Thursday night.
Several days with closed lines and a closed Rv. 7 has resulted in large challenges for the freight transportation between Oslo and Bergen/Kristiansand/Stavanger. DB Schenker has set up a large number of trucks/trailers in order to forward the goods. We have experienced some delays and large extra costs, which in turn unfortunately will result in a price increase for the goods being hit by the rail and road problems.
The status on Friday is that we have no remaining goods, neither in Oslo, Kristiansand, Stavanger nor Bergen. We will continue with the carrying by trucks to Bergen on Friday and hope that the traffic will run as normal during the weekend.
We deeply regret the inconveniences this may inflict on you as a customer.
