The ongoing nationwide strikes in France are affecting all ports across the country impacting the shipping companies’ services. Several containers are currently blocked at the ports, while many shipping companies have cancelled or postponed the berthing of their vessels.
Significant delays and additional charges are therefore to be expected for all shipments to or from French ports. These events may result in additional costs such as port charges, demurrage, etc.
Unfortunately this situation is expected to continue for several more days and delays will be felt in the weeks to come.
