The accumulated operational constraints on our West African services are heavily affecting connection of cargo from North Europe and Mediterranean. As a result, we are facing challenging transhipment operations and congestion in Tangier as well as in our main hubs in North Europe.
Hapag-Lloyd therefore have to unfortunately temporarily suspend booking of new cargo from North Europe and Mediterranean (including North Africa) to West Africa, including Ghana, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Senegal, Mauritania and Benin, with immediate effect and until further notice.
We are working on easing up the situation and will reinstate acceptance as soon as possible, which will be announced accordingly.
We regret any inconveniences this situation outside of Hapag-Lloyd’s control may cause and kindly ask for your understanding.
Should you have any questions, please reach out to your local Hapag-Lloyd office.
