Labor Strike by Brazilian Customs Workers Causing Shipment Delays

Clients with import and/or export shipments moving through Brazil should expect delays and additional costs due to a labor strike by Brazilian customs workers.

The strike is currently having the largest impact on clearance times for shipments. Cargo is remaining at terminals for an increased period of time resulting in extra storage charges and delays in shipments being delivered at destination.  Once clearance is issued by customs, transit times of 60-90 days are expected from the export clearance date.

Your RAI team is aware of these delays and ensuring that clients are   informed of any potential service disruption.
