Intra Europe Trade Ibesco Service Strike Action Lisbon
Please be informed that the ongoing strike action that began in week nine in Lisbon by the local Stevedores Union has been extended until the 13th April 2020, as per current information.
ONE is monitoring the situation and has adopted the following actions to ensure minimal impact for our customers:
All import cargo to Lisbon will be discharged in Leixoes. Therefore, we reiterate our invitation to take delivery of your cargoes from Leixoes while operations in Lisbon continue to be disrupted due to the local strike actions.
All export cargo from Lisbon is to be diverted for loading via Leixoes where possible. Understandably, we cannot accept export bookings and containers for loading in Lisbon during the strike.
To facilitate the expected demand, we are positioning empty equipment into Lisbon to cover all our local export bookings.
While many ports, in particular Rotterdam, remain seriously congested, further schedule disruptions are likely.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience.
Should you have any further questions or concerns, we kindly ask you to get in touch with your ONE local sales representative.
