Low water still troubles Rhine, Danube river




  • Low water levels persist on the Rhine and Danube in Germany and cargo vessels cannot sail fully loaded on the German sections of both rivers, traders said on Monday. The Rhine is too shallow to allow vessels to sail with full loads south of Cologne and Duisburg, traders said. Water levels have been unusually low since early August.

    The Danube is also too low for ships to sail with full loads along the entire German section of the river, they said. Low water means vessel operators impose surcharges on freight rates, increasing costs for cargo owners.
