Potential Disruptions - Italy & Chile

Posted 11/03/2023

Italy is currently facing severe weather conditions that are impacting operations at various ports. Livorno, La Spezia and Genova are all experiencing the rough weather and La Spezia port is currently closed. 

In some cases, carriers are omitting calls on these ports due to docking difficulties. If you have cargo departing Italy, please plan for additional lead time until this weather system passes. We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as available. 

In the Southern Hemisphere, the pass connecting Chile and Argentina also experienced some severe weather systems this week. The pass was closed as of last Friday, but in some fortunate news has been re-opened today. Cargo is once again flowing and the weather appears to be clearing for the time being. We will continue to monitor this situation accordingly.
