The Chilean Customs strike that began May 20th continues to slow port operations in the ports of Valparaiso and San Antonio. Now, May 28th, the strike has yet to reach a conclusion.
At both the Port of Valparaiso and the Port of San Antonio, ethical shifts are being conducted in order to service import and export operations. However, as Customs officials are without their administrative staff, receiving documentation is a slow process.
We will continue to keep you updated on the impact of the strike and will work with our contacts in Chile to mitigate any shipment delays that may occur.
