Grain inspectors in Argentina held a 24-hour strike on Monday to protest high taxes that are cutting into their wages.

According to the head of the country’s Chamber of Port and Maritime Activities (CAPyM), the job action by the Urgara union “is affecting absolutely all the ports” in Rosario, a hub for agricultural transportation, 300 km northwest of Buenos Aires, on the Paraná River.

According to Reuters, annual inflation in Argentina is currently over 104%.

The Argentine Maritime, Port and Shipbuilding Federation, another union involved in the strike action, said in a statement that “more stoppages will take place throughout the week.” Strikes have been called for Wednesday at the Buenos Aires and Dock Sud ports and Friday at the Rio Santiago shipyard.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

We made a huge improvement in global visibility with a global platform—anyone can log into NEOLink and look at a shipment anytime, anywhere in the world. We wanted a freight forwarder with a good technology platform, which could handle the complexities of our business and we found NEOLink!

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
