Customer Advisory: Shipping Lines Halt Bookings To/From Russia
March 1, 2022
Please be advised that following the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the resulting global sanctions, multiple shipping lines, including MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company), Maersk, CMA CGM, Hapag-Lloyd, and Ocean Network Express (ONE), have temporarily halted bookings to and from Russia. Carriers are generally only allowing shipments of essential humanitarian goods, medical equipment, and food.
As noted in the Maersk customer advisory*, “We are also starting to see the effect on global supply chain flows such as delays and detention of cargo by customs authorities across various transshipment hubs – overall resulting in unpredictable operational impacts. …The delays are expected to have ripple effects across the regional ocean network, resulting in further delays and congestion”.
We will continue to monitor the situation and send additional updates as needed. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your APL Logistics Account Manager.
