Safmarine will not accept cargo from the United Arab Emirates to Libya


Maersk unit Safmarine has informed customers that it will not accept cargo - including transshipments - from the United Arab Emirates to Libya in compliance with UAE port authorities, according to Shipping Gazette.
This is in response to the deteriorating security situation in the North African state.
The Libyan government has failed to control well-armed militias who backed the rebellion that toppled Muammar Gaddafi, but then staked claims to territory, oil and other resources. Diplomats have gathered in Madrid after clashes in Benghazi killed nine and wounded 30.
Thus, containers bound for Libya will be held at the port and will not be loaded on the designated vessels - even if they have been load-listed, said Safmarine.
The containers can be taken out from the port after the hold is released from customs upon the shipper's request, said the shipping line.
US forwarder Expeditors has issued an advisory that bookings shipments from the UAE to Libya through air carriers has been halted.
