The border between Belgium and France is closed.
At least more tight controls will be held at the other borders as the threat level has been increased from level 3 to 4. Our collections and deliveries in the Brussels area are heavily disturbed at this moment as a result of the congested motorways. Other areas can be impacted as well due to measures being taken by the authorities.
