Spain: Bilbao Port Strike Activity Planned for August 3-23, 2020

Citing disagreement over labor policies with new terminal owners, dockworkers at Bilbao port have announced strike action for three weeks, from August 3rd to 23rd, 2020.  This is not a full closure; stevedores will work only every other hour, from 9-10AM, 11-12PM, 1-2PM, etc.  However vessel loading and unloading operations will be much slower than normal and customers should expect to see significant delays. 

As with any transport disruption, we encourage you to protect temperature-sensitive cargo that may could face longer stays at port terminals from delays.  For information or alternatives for pending shipments, please contact your Hillebrand representative and flag upcoming orders in myHillebrand for notification alerts.
