Honduran truckers announce strike

A strike was announced today by the cargo carriers if the conflict with the Nicaraguan truckers is not resolved.

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Truckers from Nicaragua are not allowing carriers from Honduras to transport cargo coming from Nicaragua to Honduras, because according to a new law passed by the Nicaraguan Congress, only they have the authority to transport Nicaraguan merchandise to other Central American countries.
The Honduras Chamber of Truckers has given an ultimatum of 24 hours to the Secretariat of Public Works, Transport and Housing (Soptravi) to resolve the conflict that exists with the Nicaraguan transport authorities.
