Delays at Israel's ports have caused NIS 15 million in damages to food importer during October, the Federation of Israeli Chambers of Commerce reported Wednesday. Delays at the detention departments at the ports, in particular the Ashdod port, have been ongoing since the High Holidays, the group said, costing importers NIS 500,000 in damages a day as a result of storage costs, losses of orders and missing supply deadlines.
