Trucker Strike At Chilean Container Depots

Since late last week empty container depots in Valparaiso and San Antonio have been blocked by truckers demanding improved operations conditions.  While the protest was to take place only over 2 days, the blockage is still impacting some terminal depots today, notably in San Antonio. 

As a result, pickups for vessels with cutoffs Tuesday and Wednesday will be impacted.  Efforts have been underway to reschedule to Santiago depots, but this is subject to availability due tot he demand.
