Service Interruption Alert: A Strike by Union Crews At Buenaventura Port in Colombia Expected to Cause Delays

September 17, 2018

We have been informed by our supplier partners in Colombia that union crews are on strike at the Buenaventura Port. This move has resulted in shipping companies rerouting ships to other port terminals to try and mitigate the impact on operations.

As a consequence, we are advising customers with import or export shipments to prepare for some 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.
