Service Interruption Alert: Commercial Cargo Delays in Mumbai, India

April 10, 2014

The Mumbai International Airport (MIAL) is currently experiencing a backlog of export cargo due to freight shipments being diverted from the Jawaharlal Nehru Port. The matter was magnified when customs clearing agents and workers stopped operations for approximately five hours on Saturday, April 5, 2014 to protest against the airports inability to clear the backlog.

Customers with export shipments should prepare for some major delays as well as additional airport storage. Your Arpin Service team is aware of all shipments that may be impacted and will make arrangements to ensure appropriate parties are kept informed of any potential service disruption.
