Severe floods in Argentina affect port terminals at San Lorenzo

ISS Argentina is advising that severe floods are affecting shore-based logistical support at a number of port terminals in San Lorenzo – San Martin Port.  Terminals disrupted include Vincentin, Nidera, Toepfer and LD-Timbues-Noble.

Latest information advises:

  • Vicentin terminal: requested not send trucks with commodities due to the flooding emergency
  • Toepfer: suspended trucks to be received on 25th October due to the flooding
  • Nidera: suspended truck activities until further notice due to the flooding
  • LDC-Timbues-Noble: suspended truck activities until further notice due to blocked roads

Gabriel Curtarelli, Operations Manager, ISS Argentina says: “The San Lorenzo area is particularly badly affected with trees down, damage to property and slow restoration of services, including fresh water and telephone lines.  We anticipate further disruption over the next five to seven days before all services are restored.”

ISS Argentina will continue to monitor conditions on behalf of ship owners and operators and will keep customers updated.  Further updates will be posted on the ISS website www.iss-shipping.com
