Congestion in San Antonio Port

Posted 12/13/2018

Due to a number of vessels being diverted from Valparaiso Port in Chile, the port of San Antonio is experiencing a backlog of vessels and containers. The congestion is so severe that this morning the union truck drivers decided to strike, causing even more congestion and backlog to occur. 

Currently, port access is blocked and container movement - both incoming and outgoing - has been halted. 

Please be aware that there may be potential delays due to this situation. If you have any concerns about specific shipments, be sure to contact your freight forwarder. 

As always, we will keep you informed of this situation's resolution or progression.
