QCOSTARICA – The Costa Rican trucking company, GASH, announced the layoff of 65 people last March 6 following a drop in cargo volumes handled by the company.

GASH general manager, Luis Guillermo Solís, explained the company has seen a decline in the last three months, forcing the company to reduce its payroll.

“Our expectation is to resume cargo handling levels so that we can call back the employees (…),” said Solís in a statement.

The company has more than 60 years experience in the national trucking market, providing logistics solutions, storage and the handling specialized equipment.

GASH, located in La Uruca (San José), has 300 trucks and trucking yards strategically located around the country, including the major ports and the Central Valley, and in Nicaragua, in the Zona Franca Mercedes.

Solís did not say the number of employees still employed at the company, nor the areas operations affected by the slowdown in business volume.

This is the second national company to cut its staff in Costa Rica. Last month, on February 26, Alimentos Jack’s announced a cut of 50% of its operations in the country, over the next three years.

So far this year, hundreds of direct jobs have been lost in the fast food industry with the closing of the Wendy’s franchise and Bagelmens and the closing of four locations by the Burger King franchisee in Costa Rica.
