Belgian Ports Face Shutdown Mid-December

Shipping customers are being warned that they should be ready to expect delays, particularly at Antwerp and Zeebrugge as total port shutdowns are set for December 15th in a total 24 hour nationwide strike.

The December 15th shutdown follows similar occurrences on November 24th in Antwerp, and December 1st in Zeebrugge, when trade union strikes and protests froze operations at the ports.

As a result, there were full port closures and some sailing delays.  Currently, US government cargo is not routed through these ports so we do not expect any delays. Read More...
