Truck drivers in Morocco affiliated with various unions and professional transport associations will likely launch further strikes through late February following protests on February 21-22nd. Truckers have launched periodic strikes across different regions in Morocco in response to an increase in fuel prices in recent days.
Trucks, including long-distance cargo carriers, will likely remain off the road during strikes. Consequent supply chain disruptions could be exacerbated by the expected increase in the volume of trade. Striking drivers could stage impromptu road blockades in major cities and go-slow protests on major highways, leading to traffic disruptions. Fuel shortages are possible if tanker drivers participate in the action. Residual supply chain disruptions could persist for several days after the strike ends.
