Truck drivers strike in Shanghai

Please kindly be advised that the strike action in SHA has begun as of 10 am this morning, April 20, 2011.
Hundreds of strikers and several trailers were placed on the road in front of the port terminal gate to stop the traffic.
These actions were taken to protest the domestic fuel expense increased and the high handling fees charged by port
terminal operators, e.g. doc fee, container lift on/lift off fee.

Delays in receipt of export containers may result in possible knock-on effects to sea freight with possible delays or rollovers from carriers.

At this early stage we have not been advised which specific containers are affected.

We will keep you updated of developments.

If you require further information please contact your dedicated account manager.
