There’s to be almost no loading and unloading in Spain again today. With 96-100% of dockworkers on a 48-hour strike, terminals at key ports were lying idle, except for minimum service levels required by law for dangerous goods, perishables and passengers. The strike is over job guarantees and port reforms.  Maersk has already reassigned 150,000 containers a year from Algeciras to Tangier, according to the government, which says the strikes are damaging Spain’s manufacturing sector. The ports will resume handling at 8am tomorrow.
