French Strike May Delay Freight Movements
A multi-union strike is likely to cause disruption in France on Thursday, 19th January, as much of the nation look to be protesting against President Macron’s proposed reforms of the pension system.
Major unions have come together for the first time in over a decade to oppose the reforms, which sees the retirement age rising from 62 to 64.
Much of the country seem to be against the government’s proposals and have been encouraged to protest against them within cities, on transport routes, and at ports and airports.
It appears likely that some logistics services and transport in or out of the country will be impacted, including international movements to or from other countries that move via French ports and airports.
Evolution will be keeping a close eye on developments, should you require further information, or have concerns about current shipments, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
