At approximately midnight on 5 June 2024, an accident occurred at Pardubice railway station in Czech Republic, where an express train collided with a freight train. Our thoughts are with all parties impacted by the situation, and we remain in close contact with our partners and local officials.

We can confirm that the freight train involved in the accident (NEX 41340), was holding Maersk cargo and was enroute from Bratislava to Bremerhaven. No Maersk crew or personnel were present on the train.

As a result of the tragic accident, train operations between Kostěnice and Pardubice have been suspended. The repair of the junction will require several days, and alternative routes outside Pardubice are currently not feasible due to continuous disruptions, as reported by the Central Dispatcher of the Czech Railways (SŽ).

Due to the situation, we are expecting substantial delays to cargo on rail. For train services enroute at the time of the accident, the status is as follows:

BABBRV240605 – involved in the accident, stopped as investigation takes place
BUDBRV240605 – train stopped in Kuty, further departure under consideration
BRVBUD240603 – train diverted via Dresden, heavy delays expected
MZKBAB240606 – pending information from service provider

Connecting trains to and from Brno and Paskov are also affected, and customers are asked to please follow for the latest train status updates.

We are deeply concerned by this incident and are closely monitoring it. Our thoughts remain with all involved with the tragic accident. Our teams continue to remain in close contact with local officials to keep customers updated with new information as it becomes available.

At this time, any damage to containers on the train is being assessed. We understand the impact this may have on your logistics operations and will communicate to our customers once more information is available.

We thank you for your understanding during this time. Our teams are on hand to support with your planning, should you need any assistance.

For more information on your cargo, please reach out to your local Maersk representative.
