Low tide on the Rhine and Danube expensive grain transport

After the dry weather in December, the river boatmen for the Rhine and the Danube log low tide. The barges can be transported on many sections partly only 30% of the normal load.
The freight must be distributed on several ships, which significantly increases the costs for the customer. There is no supply shortages, meanwhile, still, partial deliveries by land must be laid but, so the statement of a corn dealer.
In the catchment areas of the rivers continued dry weather is predicted, an improvement is not in sight.
The Rhine is an important waterway for raw materials such as grain, minerals, coal and oil products, such as heating oil. The Danube is the most important route for the cereal from Eastern Europe to Western Europe, particularly for corn.
