Patience was required beforehand. The "Green Mountain" with the valuable cargo from Namibia had reached Rotterdam with a huge delay. But on Wednesday morning, the articulated lorries should finally drop off the Bitterwasser transports in Waghäusel, where they now have their new location.
It's been a long day. For the unloading of the last planes, the scene had to be illuminated with cars, because two container trucks had only made it to Waghäusel from a full motorway blockade in the late afternoon, it was almost evening. In the end, however, all the trailers were able to head home after they had been successfully loaded – just in time for the new season.
Hardly anyone had wanted to pass up the opportunity to receive their planes as early as possible. Only seven latecomers with a long journey will not pick up their planes until Saturday, as planned.
