Update: Bilbao Spain Port Strike to Start a Week Later (August 8 – 23rd, 2020)

Please note that the strike action planned by dockworkers at Bilbao will start one week later, from August 8th – 23rd.  As mentioned previously, 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.
