An agreement was reached on Tuesday to end the Chilean trucker strike that had persisted for eight days and alarmed the country’s fruit industry.

Authorities announced that an operational plan will be designed by local police to improve security on the routes between Arica and Coquimbo, as well as a bill to maintain the price of diesel and the construction of six new rest areas.

Iván Marambio, president of the Chilean Fruit Exporters Association (ASOEX) told FreshFruitPortal.com there had been losses of  almost $500 million per week.

During the strike, cherries were among the most impacted exports, followed closely by blueberries.
