Service Interruption Alert: Customs Delays in Argentina

April 16, 2018

Due to high employee turnover and internal conflicts, Argentina Customs is currently performing clearance services at minimal operational levels. This has resulted in major delays in the processing of household goods shipments. The delays are affecting both import and export shipments during the early stages of documentation processing.

Consequently, customers with shipments moving through Argentina should prepare for 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 ensure appropriate parties are kept informed of any potential service disruption.
