We have been advised that there are severe delays to trucks delivering empty / laden export containers to the port of Nhava Sheva.
Reports suggest the queue of export loaded containers has reached about 15 – 20 Km from the port terminal gate and up to Chinari i.e. near Toll Naka at upper highway NH4B. Therefore, movements of empty and loaded containers are taking an additional 24 hours to reach the intended terminal.
This may result in laden containers missing the cut off for sailings from Nhava Sheva and UK importers using the port should be aware that their shipments may be delayed.
We have been advised that since the death of a RTG Operator working for the port of Nhava Sheva, there have been stoppages for his funeral and disputes between the operator's union and the port.
We will advise if we receive any further updates.
