Kindly be informed that Container Truck Drivers at the port of Chennai have initiated a Flash Strike. Below is an extract from the message received from APL explaining the current situation in Chennai.

 

“This is to inform you that the Truck drivers have gone on a flash strike since the early hours of the 13th November outside the Port gates protesting against continued delays en-route, on account of poor road conditions and frequent tension with local residents leading to civil disorder.  The strike continues till date.

 

Port Chairman is expected to hold a meeting today afternoon to defuse the situation.

 

Meanwhile a press report in a local Tamil newspaper stated that a case filed in High Court to restrict container movement on Ennore Road until road expansion is completed, a notice to this effect has been sent to Central and State Government for their inputs.’

 

We hope to bring you updates as and when they are available.

Thank you for your continued business with Omnitrans.
