Service Interruption Alert: A Strike by Brazil Customs at the Port of Santos Expected to Cause Delays

April 13, 2018

Customs workers in Brazil elected to apply stricter strike standards at Brazil’s Port of Santos – the largest port on the continent. This move is expected to result in major “work slow-downs” for the remaining workers mandated to work for public safety reasons.

As a consequence, we are advising customers with import or export shipments to prepare for some major delays as well as additional port storage, demurrage, and various other charges which may be assessed.

Your Arpin Service team is aware of all shipments that may be impacted and will make arrangements to insure appropriate parties are kept informed of any potential service disruption.
