Workers Strike at Maceio Port, Brazil
Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) is advised of a strike by port workers at Maceio port in Brazil on Friday 22nd February from 0700 to 1300 hours. The striking port workers will include stevedores and linesmen, so the port will not be operative during this time.
“We anticipate this will delay the berthing of any vessels calling at Maceio until the end of the strike,” said Francisco Villagrán, Vice President Operations South America for ISS.
ISS Brazil will continue to monitor events in the country on behalf of shipowners and operators, and will post any news updates to the company website.
