first_imgzoom A significant fire that occurred on January 29 at the Itaqui Terminal in São Luís, Brazil may cause delays for shippers using this port, Skuld reports.The fire reportedly started at the pulp storage shed of the country’s major cellulose exporter Suzano.Initial information indicates that the terminal’s grain loading belt system may have been affected by this fire, possibly significantly, according to Skuld. No one has been reported to have been hurt.While it also appears that no vessels were affected directly by this incident, there is likely to be an immediate delay while the damage is assessed and repaired, says Skuld.The full extent of the consequences is not known at this time, but a knock on delay effect is possible.Source: Skuld; Image: Porto do Itaqui/Facebooklast_img
