Brazil's main ports will continue to load and unload ships through the Carnival festival although port administrators will be off from late Feb. 27 to midday on Feb. 28, port authorities said on Tuesday.

Labor at the country's southern ports will be on the docks loading and unloading ships around the clock as usual despite Brazil's Carnival festivities, which begin officially on Saturday, Feb. 24, said authorities at leading shipping ports.

At Brazil's largest port Santos as well as at the country's main grain port Paranagua, only the administrative offices will be closed from 7 p.m. on Feb. 27 to 1:00 p.m. on Feb. 28 with no expected interruption in ship movement.
