Brazilian ports are facing problems in maintaining normal operations due to nationwide Health Authorities strike.

Major Brazilian ports around the country are experiencing considerable delays.

Vitoria in the south-east has reported a huge increase in the number of vessels at anchor awaiting their berthing turn. The number of vessels at anchorage increased almost ten-fold compared to customary port conditions.

Local sources report that Santos Port has about 78 ships waiting at anchorage, in addition to considerable delays on loading/unloading, due to an accumulation of idle cargo inside the terminals awaiting its clearance be granted.

Brazil's largest southern port, Paranagua, has more than 120 ships waiting at anchorage. However, the Port Authority claims that the strike is not the only issue affecting the waiting time. There was a long period of rainfall at Paranagua over the past 40 days, which Paranagua Port Administration also takes into consideration.

More than 20 ships are wating at the anchorage are of the north-east port of Suape, as a result of delays caused by Health Authority strike.
