INDIA TERMINAL UPDATE, 11/25/2013

ALERT – Trade notice

Please note the go slow strike at GTI terminal at Nhava Sheva port by section of the workers have been called off with effect from midnight yesterday (21/11/2013).

With the announcement of this – GTI terminal authorities have informed that the gates will now be opened for vehicular movement. However they have announced that priority will be given for movement / removal of import containers that are struck at the terminal during the slow down. At the same time they will also start taking in export containers in due course.

Please note the congestion on the roads leading to the port terminals is still not resolved. This situation will take some more time / days to normalize by possibility of more containers being accepted by the terminals and operation of all planned vessels.

We estimate that it may take from 5 – 8 days for normalcy to return in operations at Nhava port.

We are closely monitoring the situation and will update you regularly.
