Spain Ports Face Labor Disruptions

Spain is currently facing a wave of strikes by the country’s stevedores due to the government’s plans of changing current labor laws that affect the port community and aim to make them comply with EU regulations.

Dock workers’ unions have announced standstills for March 10, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22 and 24 while over the last weeks covert strikes with much reduced activity have been happening in most Spanish ports, causing vessel delays and long waiting hours to deliver / pick up cargo at the terminals.

These actions are having a serious impact on the logistics chain and currently no end of the conflict is in sight. Carriers such as Hapag Lloyd and Zim have begun charging Congestion Surcharges as of this week and other carriers might follow shortly.

We will keep you informed of all further developments in this extraordinary situation.

If you have any questions, please contact your local TransGroup station.
