Some Improvement at Aqaba Terminal

The strike situation at Aqaba is improving slowly. The Terminal has achieved 300 yard moves  and 302 vessel moves on 19th October with limited staff and Army involvement.  The labor issue has reached the Court and they expect a decision soon on this issue.  This morning, more staff reported to work in the terminal and began work with 4 cranes on the vessels which are alongside the dock.
