Honduras port still open
With deposed Honduran president Manuel Zelaya vows to fly back to regain power and political unrest in some parts of the country, the main port, Puerto Cortes, reportedly remains open, according to Bloomberg news service and container carrier APL.
APL said it was “developing contingency plans to keep containerized cargo moving” and keeping its office open with limited staff.
Major highways in the port vicinity are blocked, curtailing truck transport, APL said, and cargo is being held at the port until highways are passable. It also noted that El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua have closed their borders with Honduras.
The carrier said its ship APL San Juan departed from the port today ahead of schedule.
