According to MSC press release, the terminals at Port Sudan have ceased operations creating uncertainty on the berthing prospects of their vessels and causing substantial delays.
The press release continues: "This unfortunate situation makes it unreasonable to continue the carriage of their shipment to Port Sudan as initially intended. Therefore, MSC is left with no other choice to announce end of voyage at King Abdulla Port for all container types including reefer and dry cargo in accordance with clause 19 of our Bill of Lading and Sea Waybill Terms and Conditions."
"Cargo will be at your disposal for pick up on your own account (clause 19.1(c)) after payment of due costs and local charges."
"Due to risk of cargo deterioration and damages to MSC reefer equipment, we invite the merchant to take delivery as soon as possible."
"We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you. MSC continues to monitor the situation very closely in order to resume our service to port Sudan."
"Should you have any questions, please contact your local MSC representatives in our global network of more than 500 offices."
