Pier shutdown confuses carriers


There was a shutdown of the pier operations yesterday morning without warning .The port officials said that it was due to the inclement weather that employees couldn’t arrive on time. So many trucks carrying export products were caught flat-footed on the road that they didn’t know where to go. It was chaotic in the main road leading to the port area due to the trucks parked by the roadside. The government is investigating the incident.


I am puzzled why the ports would be closed just because it was raining hard or there was a storm. From what I know, the ports are always open because the goods keep coming especially from abroad. But maybe the port authorities has a hidden agenda to do that. I refuse to say more for I might be incriminated by my allegation.
