SUBJECT: Iraq – Port Situation Update
With reference to the updates from our Iraq field office, there are on-going protests and demonstrations in many cities of Iraq. Due to this, the access roads to the port have been blocked and port operations are closed since 25 October 2019.
Port remains closed which is effecting the vessel operations; all activities including discharging / loading of containers as well as pick up and clearance of containers from the port is delayed. Feeder schedule to and from transshipment port is also impacted.
We will stay close to the development and keep you updated of the status. Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact our local office and Customer Service Representatives for details.
