Chile’s Antofagasta Port Ends Strike, Restarts Copper Shipments

By Nathan Gill
Oct. 7 (Bloomberg) — Copper shipments from northern Chile’s Antofagasta port restarted today after two weeks of delays caused by a labor strike, the port’s operator said.
The 14-day strike ended last night, Tamara Rebolledo, a spokeswoman for Antofagasta Terminal Internacional SA, said today in a telephone interview.
The strike affected some shipments by Xstrata Plc, the world’s fourth-largest copper supplier, the company said Oct. 2. An Xstrata spokeswoman didn’t return phone messages or answer an e-mail seeking comment today.
