Due to this difficult situation, we would like to inform you that APMT at Barcelona will take some specific and punctual actions in order to mitigate the impact to customers of these consecutives strikes. The actions to take are:

– Export Cargo/Containers to be loaded shall only be accepted whenever are in the Terminal within the following time frame: not earlier than 5 Working Days from the start of the scheduled vessel’s operations, and not later than 6 hours prior to the start of the scheduled operations of the vessel. No exceptions will be accepted.

– VAS service can be affected and we cannot confirm the service during the strike period

These measures will be taken only if the strike is finally confirmed.

Hope to be helpful.

Kind regards,
Leonardo Schettini
