In light of the truck driver strike across Spain that’s been ongoing since 14 March, the Port of Valencia has set contingency measures to tackle the consequent congestion they are suffering.

From Saturday 26 March at 14h00 onwards, the following rules will apply across all three Valencia terminals:

  • Terminals will ONLY admit trucks to pick up empty units bound for depots and trucks for laden import container retrieval.
  • They will cease acceptance of laden export containers with the only exception of full reefer export containers and containers bound the Canary Islands.

As per the information received by the Port Authority of Valencia, this contingency situation will last for as long as is necessary until the minimum space has been freed at each terminal to accept export laden containers again.

Keeping your supply chain moving is of utmost importance to Maersk, and we will do our best to keep you informed as the situation develops. We also recommend you stay up to date with the Valenciaport Community for further information.
