As the strike in Costa Rica’s Caribbean port city of Limón stretched into its tenth day, importers and exporters are struggling to meet their obligations to customers, according to several sources consulted by The Tico Times.

Despite the port remaining open, the ongoing strike has created an administrative backlog that has delayed some shipments by as much as 72 hours.

The National Police expelled striking longshoremen from the docks in Limón and Moín on the evening of Oct. 22.

 The docks reopened Oct. 23 with contract labor, but businesses have complained that understaffed facilities have caused expensive delays at the port.
