Strikes and lockout in Gothenburg containerport

Dear All,

Unfortunately the situation in Gothenburg container terminal is going from bad to worse.

The ongoing strikes, extensive sick leave and go slow actions from the Dockworkers union is now met with a partial lock out from APM terminal, and they will now only work day time.

The carriers are declaring Force majeure and will drop the import containers in different ports.

Export is faced with long delays and we try to reroute export to other ports, but as the other ports are much smaller, they also face congestions.

Unfortunately I expect this situation to continue for a long time. The Dockworkers Union and APM terminal are very far from each other in the negotiations.

Notice from APM below.

Best regards
Erik Gara
Branch Manager
