Strike at San Antonio Port , Chile

Last Friday workers went on strike at San Antonio Puerto Central terminal which has affected the operation of scheduled vessels and the cargo schedules.  The grievance stems from workers requests for emergency economic assistance due to the pandemic, but there is little clarity or information on the duration of the protest.

Our shipping partner Hillebrand will work to reschedule loads and divert cargo to alternative ports when these options are available.  We also urge you to take precautions to protect temperature-sensitive orders with operating reefer or Hillebrand insulation.
