This is to inform our customers about the possible upcoming dockworkers' strike in the USA East Coast ports.

The recent rounds of negotiation between the dockworkers' union ILA (International Longshoremen's Association) and the port association covering the Gulf and East Coast of the USA USMX (United States Maritime Alliance) ended abruptly, prefiguring an extensive stike after the expiring of the current general contract, on September 30th.

This situation could cause delays and unexpected demurrage charges on the next ocean freight shipments to the East Coast of the USA.

Alisped, by constantly monitoring the evolution of things, is able to provide its customers with real-time updates on this situation and possible service alternatives.
