181 - 03/01 - Theft of Cargo from Containers - Santos/Buenos Aires – Brazil/Argentina
We have been advised by the Club’s correspondents, in Buenos Aires, of a number of recent theft cases on cargoes out of Santos, Brazil in containers bound for Buenos Aires.
In at least 5 cases over the past two months the full contents of several containers bound for Buenos Aires from Santos have been found completely missing. In some of the cases, involving different ships and different receivers the cargo and shipper have been found to be common. The commodity involved was plastics used for the making of plastic bottles. The shipper involved was called Plastiplak Packaging do Brasil Ltda.
