Rhine River Dips to 40cm

GERMANY
  • Bloomberg report that the Rhine River has dipped to 40cm at the key waypoint.
  • The drop to 40cm is generally as predicted earlier this week - so no real surprise, but still not a great sign for freight / supply chains on the continent.
  • The German Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration was forecasting 40cm to be hit today - at this level, the river itself (particularly the Kaub waypoint) becomes effectively impassable for the majority of barges.
