Container Backlog Causes Delays in Philippines

July 14, 2014

We are pleased to report that the strike has ended and the MTPB has opened 24/7 express trade lanes in and out of Manila ports to ease the backlog, however, it is still expected to take several months for operations to return to normal. Therefore, customers with import or export shipments should prepare for some major delays as well as additional port storage, demurrage, and various other charges.

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