Good morning ALL

We need you to inform you about situation in Poland which may influence services.

– Note please that pre-schools, primary schools and high schools teachers started a general strike action today and all of these institutions are closed. We know it is not directly related to logistics but as far as parents can’t send their kids to schools then they may face problems to secure daily care for the children. The teachers Strike is about teachers’ wages and is politically driven by the current government.

In addition to the teachers strike- Today in Warsaw taxi drivers went on strike, and now nearly the whole city is on stand still as taxi drivers from the whole country are pushing into the City centre.

– There are repeated strike actions in Warsaw and on main national roads by farmers. This means blockades of the roads with farm equipment of the farmers… No one knows when or where these road blocks action is undertaken by them as they want to cause maximum disruption .

We hope these strikes can quickly be resolved but please keep an eye on the news and liaise with our members in Poland for more info.

Finally can I remind you all to book early for this years ASA Conference in Dubai its going to be big this year, and Early Bird discount for all bookings in April..
