Navios takes Vale to court over Uruguay terminal

A month after Navios Maritime Holdings revealed Vale has ditched plans to use an iron ore terminal under construction in Nueva Palmira, Uruguay, the Angeliki Frangou-led company has decided to pursue legal action against the Brazilian miner.

Navios said it will take legal measures to enforce its entitlement to damages in accordance with the contract terms.

The pair had signed a 20-year agreement in 2013 for storing and transhipping up to 6m tonnes of iron ore and other commodities a year.
