Dear Valued Customers,
Subject: Service Change to South Sudan
According to Travel Advisory by Kenya Transporters Association on 23rd August, it is reported the recent ambush attacks and killed on truck drivers along the Nimule – Juba Highway. Emirates Shipping Line (ESL) has decided to temporarily suspend the TBL (Through BL) Service to South Sudan immediately for security reason. We will keep you informed when the corridor Mombasa-Juba will be safe again to resume the service.
For In Transit by merchant haulage to South Sudan, we will maintain the acceptance per customers’ own decision and arrangement. In order to cover the risk, Container deposit at POD will be adjusted to USD2,500 / 20’ & USD7,000 / 40’ HC with immediate effect. The container deposit can be used for the safe return of our containers and to offset any potential outstanding demurrages.
For your best arrangement, Emirates Shipping Line is also providing TBL Service to other East Africa hinterlands per below with comprehensive, responsive and competitive solutions. Please contact our local Sales and Customer Service team for bookings and any further assistance.
