SUBJECT: Umm Qasr, Iraq – Port Situation 2nd Updated
As latest update of our Iraq office, Port gates were opened up yesterday with security measures and limited movement. Each terminal at Umm Qasr is individually evaluating the situation and BGT – North Port (Basra Gateway Terminal) has resumed vessel operations. Containers gate in and out are expected to be resumed by today but movement may be delayed due to security check and backlog at yard. The yard operations and backlog will be resolved in the coming days.
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.
