Panamanian Customs Strike

  • 1.  Panamanian Customs Strike

    From H. Alejandro Rodríguez of Canal Moves & Logistics Corp.:

    Panamanian Customs Officers have been on strike on December 6th and 7th,  and they claim that if they don't reach an agreement with the Panamanian Government, they will extend the strike for the following days. This could cause extra charges, such as, but not limited to: container detention, storage, etc., due to the impossibility of carrying out international trade operations thru Customs. We will keep you posted about the development of this situation.

    I just received an update on this matter:

    "We have been told by our local Customs Authority that the strike has ended and all Customs Operations has been restored."
