Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), one of the world’s leading maritime providers, gave forewarning yesterday of a potential strike due to take place within Argentina for an entire 24 hours.
The strike is set to see stoppages in numerous ports for truck, bus and train drivers, in addition to pilot boat masters, linesmen and tug boat operators.
The strike, which is supported by The Union, is anticipated to affect shipping operations within the port of San Lorenzo-Rosario. It is thought the most affected will be shipments through Rio de la Plata and the Parana River travelling by pilot boat.
General Manager for ISS Argentina has said: “During the strike we expect to see operations at San Lorenzo-Rosario delayed by a day. The strike will affect all cargoes destined for the port and ships will be required to remain at anchorage if they have been unable to berth prior to commencement of the strike.”
The strike will continue to be monitored by ISS Argentina to review the effect of the strike on the country’s ports for ship-owners and operators.
As one of the world’s leading maritime service providers, ISS has over 300 offices in 66 countries, with a work force of over 3,800.
