Alternate paths were authorized for Nicaraguan cargo stuck at the border, in order to reach Port Cortés in Honduras.
Due to the Honduran conflict, some 250 Nicaraguan cargo containers are blocked from entering Honduras at the border post of Las Manos.
Nicaragua's customs authority, known as DGA, authorized trucks "to be routed to El Espino and El Guasaule, where they can enter Honduras and continue towards Port Cortés, in the Caribbean coast of the country", according to newspaper Elnuevodiario.com.ni.
Central America and Mexico agreed on a plan to harmonize the rules on weights and dimensions allowed on roads and ports.
The Directorate of the Mesoamérica Project announced in a press release: "The main priority in this plan is to simplify procedures and improve the weight control and dimensions that apply in ports and roads in the region with the objective of those countries saving in investments."
In Costa Rica, exporters must report the weight of each container 24 hours before the shipment of goods, by means of a declaration.
The Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MOPT) has announced that the draft regulations which will govern the verification system for the weight of containers leaving the country by sea, are now ready.
