Update – Trucking Strike continues to affect Argentina shipments via Chile

Truckers continue to strike in protest of the reinforced border controls and reduced customs staff on the cross-Andes road (connecting shipments from wine regions in and around Mendoza to Chilean ports). 

The strike was initiated the evening of January 18th and is still not resolved.

​​​​This has blocked road transportation between Argentina and Chile for over a week.  As the strike continues any freight in Chilean warehouses could also face additional storage charges over the allotted free time.  

For more information on bookings for pending shipments around this time, please reach out to your Hillebrand representative.
