Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, is advising of a strike by port workers at Maceio port in Brazil on Friday 22nd February from 0700 to 13.00 hours.

The striking port workers will include stevedores and linesmen so the port will not be operative during this time.

Says Francisco Villagrán, Vice President Operations South America for ISS: “We anticipate this will delay the berthing of any vessels calling at Maceio until the end of the strike.”

ISS Brazil will continue to monitor events in the country on behalf of shipowners and operators, and will post any news updates to the company website, www.iss-shipping.com.
