Strikes at Frenc​h ports are continuing to cause delays to container line Hapag-Lloyd's operations there, the company said Wednesday.

"We regret to report that the strike situation at French ports haven't changed," the company said.

"We are still facing sporadic strikes in Le Havre and Fos-sur-Mer, generating terminal and vessel congestion."

Hapag-Lloyd reported it expects a 72-hour work stoppage at Fos from 8pm on Wednesday, and another at Le Havre from 6am on Thursday.
