Seaboard Marine wishes to advise its valued customers that the widespread labor strikes persist and are continuing to affect the movement of cargo to and from ports along the Atlantic Coast of Costa Rica. At this time, Seaboard Marine remains unable to dispatch or receive containers at Puerto Limon.

Cargo from the M/V Varamo Voyage 16, destined to South Florida from Costa Rica, is expected to arrive aboard the M/V AS Fiorella Voyage 605 (northbound), estimated to arrive on September 25, 2018.

As previously advised, the M/V AS Patria Voyage 38 was unable to call Puerto Limon as scheduled due to the ongoing labor strikes. Cargo destined to Costa Rica from Houston and New Orleans is rescheduled and estimated to arrive in Puerto Limon aboard the M/V Petulia Voyage 8 on September 27, 2018.

Vessels expected to load cargo destined to the United States Gulf (Houston and New Orleans) as well as Philadelphia and Brooklyn from Costa Rica, are still at anchorage in Costa Rica, and tentatively have been scheduled to load tomorrow, Saturday September 22, 2018, in the afternoon. Some delays are to be expected.

The safety of our employees, as well as your cargo, are of utmost importance. Seaboard Marine will continue monitoring the situation for further impacts to our Costa Rica operations and will provide further updates as more information becomes available.

Please contact your local representative for information regarding specific shipments.

As always, we thank you for your continued support
