Dear valued Customers, since the devastating explosion occurred at the port of Beirut on August, 4th 2020, which caused severe damages at the office and warehouse we’ve been able to continue our weekly service to Lebanon with Port of discharge Tripoli.
Since end of October all organizational formalities have been completed and our agent Oceanair informed us that we can start booking our containers to Beirut Port again. They have been granted a temporary warehouse by port authorities where they have already started unstuffing all import consol containers. This warehouse is licensed and approved as EURO ZONE area, clients can now benefit from EUR1 agreement made between Lebanon and the European community. Being bonded warehouse, customs officers are physically present, during working hours, allowing custom broker prompt and necessary documents verification.
Please note that handling of any consolidated containers that contain hazardous cargo is rejected by Lebanese port authorities for the time being.
So far IMO Cargo can be shipped to Beirut port in FCL containers only. If you need any assistance or quotations for FCL transports, do not hesitate to contact our FCL deprtartment.
