MANUFACTURERS ARE facing thousands of dollars  in storage fees as the go-slow continues at the Bridgetown Port.

And, says executive director of the Barbados Manufacturers’ Association, Bobbi McKay, the effects will be felt in the pockets of consumers as manufacturers will be forced to pass on costs.

McKay said manufacturers had been having issues clearing their containers from the Port “for a while”.
