Dense Fog at Santos port delays containership by seven hours
Record fog is delaying shipments at South America’s busiest port of Santos, Brazil, adding to other woes shippers are coping with, including from customs slowdowns and a recurring labor dispute between terminal operators and dockworkers. The Santos entrance channel was closed on Monday beginning at 2:45 a.m. EST and only reopened at 1:30 p.m. EST, delaying 11 ships, including four container ships, according to Codesp, the port authority for Santos. Two of the four delayed container ships were the Hamburg Sud vessels CAP San Raphael, with a capacity of 9,814 twenty-foot-equivalent units, and the Fernão de Magalhães, with a capacity of 3,765 TEUs. Their departures were delayed from the Santos Brasil-operated Tecon Santos terminal by between seven and nine hours.
