HAMBURG : It is a fact: the global logistics industry is facing an unprecedented strain. In some cases, this is caused by port congestions and vessel delays. While the industry adapts to the new scenarios, we have decided to take a few measures to clear backlogs in some of our ports.
If you are shipping with our US Gulf – South America East Coast (GS1), please note that there will be changes in cargo acceptance. With immediate effect, we will halt all shipments from all Brazilian main ports to La Guaira and Puerto Cabello in Venezuela.
We expect this situation to last until end of February, and we will keep you informed of the developments concerning these changes. We thank you for your understanding and please know that if you should require additional information, our customer service team at your location will be happy to guide you based on your individual situation.
