Guatemala Strike

2016-10-28

To Our Valued Partners,

Please be advised that cargo movement within Guatemala is currently impeded as protests and strikes continue to block main thoroughfares including the entry/exits to the port of Santo Tomas. This means that currently, no cargo deliveries for southbound cargo from the port of Santo Tomas to points within Guatemala and El Salvador are being released. Additionally, pick-ups for northbound cargo from any origin city in Guatemala or El Salvador bound for the port in Santo Tomas have halted and trucking services from Guatemala to any other Central America country may be delayed.

As with any strike, this continues to be a fluid situation. We will minimize the impact to cargo operations to the best of our ability while maintaining the safety of our employees, equipment and your cargo and will keep you updated with further information and impact as it becomes available.

Please contact your Customer Service representative with questions or for additional information.
