Strike hits port activity

Operations at South Asia Pakistan Terminal (SAPT) came to a standstill late Monday evening after a workers’ union went on strike demanding restoration of sacked workers and a raise in salary.
The entire port area, including Karachi port and deep water port where the private terminal (SAPT) is located near Keamari, was jammed with traffic the whole day on Tuesday.
Normal operations of other terminals and the entire Karachi port activity was paralysed as heavy vehicles clogged the entire port area starting from Keamari, ICI Bridge up to Northern Bypass.
The SAPT is operated by Hutchison Ports, Hong Kong since the Karachi Port Trust (KPT) gave the terminal on lease.—APP
