In South America's largest container port, Santos, as the port customs will strike again, the carrier and the owner are preparing for the delay and additional storage costs to be faced.China disposable clothing manufacturers, China medical mask suppliers and China disposable suit manufacturers should also pay attention to this event.

The Brazilian Customs Officers' Union decided on Wednesday to implement the "clear action" from October 16, and if their demands were not met, a full strike would be implemented from 1 November.

The union says they will continue to clear the "necessary" goods, such as drugs, hospital supplies, live animals and food on board crew. According to the union, the economic slowdown would add an additional 3,000 containers per day to Santos Pier and lead to an increase in cleaning time of three to five days instead of an average of 24 hours.

São Paulo and Santos's shipping agency executive chairman Jose Roque warned that economic slowdown and strikes could threaten Brazil's ongoing fragile economic recovery.
