Dear Valued Customer,
Subject: Saudi Arabia Import Container Deposit
Thank you for shipping with our company to Middle East. This is to inform you of the instruction from MAWANI, Saudi Port Authority that shipping lines or their agency should not collect container security deposit from consignees or their handling agent, starting from 18th October 2020 per discharge.
In order to secure the proper control and protect all stakeholders’ interest, we would like to emphasize that consignees at destination should clear all the equipment detention, repairing and cleaning charges whatsoever incurred for which container deposit is not paid. Otherwise, shipper at origin will be held liable for the overdue.
We appreciate your kind cooperation and support. If any queries, please contact Sales or Customer Service at local office. You may also visit our website www.emiratesline.com for more details.
