Venezuela closes border with Colombia

Aug 26, 2015
Juerg Degenmann from Global Mundazas Internacionales in Venezuela has advised that as a result of the continuing unrest in the country, the Venezuelan government has closed its border with Colombia. He said that the situation is very tense and he has no official knowledge on when it will reopen.

Venezuela closes border with ColombiaJuerg explained that his company has road shipments blocked that were dispatched before the closure was announced.  The company also has other moves pending in its warehouse in Caracas that will not be routed until transit between the two countries has been restored with full guarantees. The situation is causing the company great concern as it does everything possible to safeguard its clients’ effects.

In addition to this new situation the previously reported lack of outbound containers, caused because imports into Venezuela are diminishing day by day, continues.  There are also delays to air consignments as they have to be routed with the few airlines available for cargo which means dispatching them via either Madrid or Frankfurt, even when they are destined for closer destinations such as Miami or Panama.

Juerg thanks his agents for their understanding, patience and trust and wishes to assure them that his company is doing all it can to operate normally under these very testing conditions.
