Lockdown in Austria

Hard lockdown affects transportation to and from Austria.

16. November

Austria to re-enter 'hard lockdown' on Tuesday as Covid-19 cases soar. The following measures will apply from Tuesday: 

  • People are urged to work from home if possible
  • People should not leave their homes except for going to work, buying essentials, seeking healthcare, etc.
  • Shops, stores, personal services, restaurants, bars, and hotels must close. However, grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, post offices, gas stations, etc. can remain open between 6:00 and 19:00.
  • Schools and universities will switch to “distance learning.”

How does this influence transportation?

Until now, it is still possible to enter Austria with supplies. When transporting goods to or from Austria, it is, therefore, your responsibility to check whether your trade partner in Austria is open and manned for pick-up and/or delivery. If LEMAN is not able to load/unload due to these circumstances, any cost will be at the expense of the transport buyer.

Until further notice, the restrictions apply from 17th November to 7th December 2020.

Do you have any questions?

Please contact your local LEMAN specialist if you want to know more about your options or if you have questions regarding the latest restrictions.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
