Planned Strike of National Union of Port Workers


National Union of Port Workers have declared a strike for a halt of operations as from 00:00 hours of the 4th of June to 24:00 hours of the 8th of June (Monday to Friday next week). If this strike goes ahead, it is likely to affect the normal activities in the ports of Lisbon and Leixoes, mainly vessel's arrivals and departures.


Samskip will still deliver sailings to Portugal, however,  berth and operations are uncertain with a risk  of delays. We constantly monitor this situation and will keep you fully informed of the developments. In addition, Samskip will continue to explore the best alternatives for this temporary situation and minimize the impact to our customers. In some cases, we are forced to add rerouting costs.
