General points of interest:

- To prevent failed deliveries and additional transport charges we kindly ask you to actively check with your delivery point if they are open to receive deliveries. We assume the delivery point is open to receive deliveries when accepting your transport order. Please inform us as soon as possible in case any changes. 
- We expect a decrease in truck capacity in the coming days / weeks and will anticipate and respond appropriately.
- Health and safety measures at loading and unloading addresses can cause delays. The service levels will be adjusted accordingly.
- Additional controls will be carried out at the borders, which can have an impact on the entire lead time.


For all Seacon warehouse operations, we have taken every precaution to minimize the Corona impact. All Seacon warehouses are currently fully operational

 We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Update: Venlo, March 12th 2020

Dear business partner,

This afternoon the Dutch government announced several new national measures with respect to the Corona-virus.

Seacon fully conforms itself to these measures to its maximum ability. Our steering committee has already issued internal guidelines which will be implemented immediately. Our Seacon team will remain fully operational partly via home-office, spreaded working hours and enhanced hygiene protocols.

This will remain valid until at least March 31st 2020. 

In case of any updates, we will update this website.

Kind regards,

On behalf of the Seacon Team

Dear business partner, 

We would like to share an important update. We are closely monitoring the situation, developments and the global impact of the Coronavirus.

We have implemented a steering committee to monitor the situation and we take steps to ensure the wellbeing and safety of our employees and visitors. The committee is providing relevant and timely updates to our employees, business partners and other stakeholders. 

Seacon remains fully operational, and continues all transportation and warehousing activities while adhering to government and health regulations. Our scale, technology and management systems enable us to continue to support our network worldwide.

Seacon has appropriate plans in place to allow our employees to work remotely if necessary. We are available to support you with advice, operational execution and mitigation plans.
