Hundreds of workers from the Barú banana company are maintaining a blockade, demanding participation in the negotiations that Del Monte is holding with the Government to manage the banana business.
Prensa.com printed statements by Juan Carlos Segura, freight transporter from Costa Rica: "There are perishable products, resin for factories and food inside the containers that have not been delivered to their final destinations. The transporter has costs for remaining in the area because he/she must spend money on food and this was not anticipated. He noted that each driver will have $200 on expenses for remaining in the area."
Costa Rican transporters have blocked the Paso Canoas border alleging abuses in the controls carried out by Panamanian authorities.
The measure taken by the Costa Ricans have already caused millions in losses due to delays in the arrival of cargo and damage to goods. For this reason the National Chamber of Panamanian Cargo Transporters (Canatraca) has asked the authorities concerned to solve a problem which has returned only five months after an agreement was signed between the two nations.
In negotiations, regional transporters achieved the suspension of customs charges at Paso Canoa, Panama.
Panamanian authorities committed to find a new way of transferring the costs generated by the entrance of merchandise to their owners.
From Prensa.com: "Juan Carlos Segura, president of the Costa Rican transporters, indicated that the paralyzing measure they adopted yesterday was immediately suspended once an agreement was reached on customs charges to transporters entering Panama"
