Spain – Bilbao Port Strike Called Off / Negotiations Resume

It is welcome news to report that negotiations between the stevedores union and terminal operations have resumed and the labor unions have called off the Bilbao port strike.

Be aware that after 57 days of consecutive strike action, the congestion backlog at Bilbao is massive.  It will take a considerable amount of time to move towards normalcy and congestion surcharges announced by carriers will continue until terminal operations are fluid again.
