A nationwide port strike! Operations were disrupted and multiple ports were shut down

2024-07-04 10:02

Early warning! On July 4-5, there was a general strike in Italian ports across the country. It will affect all port operations in the country or will be disrupted.

The Italian transport union and the employer have not been able to reach an agreement despite six months of contract negotiations. The two sides still disagree on the terms of the negotiations. For this reason, the unions Uiltrasporti, Fit Csl, Filt Cgil and Fit Cisl announced that port workers will hold a two-day strike on July 4 and 5 due to the delay in renewing their contracts. The strike will affect all port operations in the country and may be disrupted.

In a reminder on its website, the union representing port workers has revealed more details about the upcoming port strike in Italy. The strike, which will take place on July 4-5, will cause transportation disruptions, disrupt port operations, and cause delays and cancellations in container loading and unloading. While some terminals have already provided details of the strike, other ports are also expected to experience operational disruptions.

In the notice, the company said that the following terminals have been notified of the planned duration of the strike, but other ports in Italy will also be affected.

In addition, Dexun Logistics also reminds that, in view of the ongoing construction works, it is expected that between July and August of this year, rail traffic to the Port of Genoa will face a total or partial closure, which will directly limit the capacity of the port. In view of this unexpected situation, Tecson predicts that the carrying capacity of the overall trucking will also be affected and will be under pressure.

In response to this challenge, Deutsche is actively evaluating other rail connections as alternatives, but given the current capacity constraints, it is expected that these alternative routes may experience congestion and affect transport efficiency.

At the same time, in terms of warehousing, the warehousing situation in Milan and the surrounding areas (not limited to this area) is saturated, and the storage space for goods is tight. In conjunction with the announced strike action and the reduction in rail connections to the port of Genoa, we would like to remind our customers that they may experience delays in the delivery or delivery of goods, which will affect the on-time flow of goods.

It is recommended that freight forwarders plan their logistics plans in advance, consider adopting diversified transportation methods, and reserve sufficient buffer time to cope with possible delays to ensure the stability and smoothness of the supply chain.
