07/06/17

Please be advised that as of the 5th June 2017, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and yesterday 6th June 2017, Yemen cut diplomatic ties with Qatar.

Consequently, Container terminals in Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi Terminals no longer accept cargo to/from Qatar ports (including transshipment cargo). In compliance with the above guidelines a.hartrodt are ceasing cargo acceptance between Qatar and the above countries with immediate effect.

Further to above, the a.hartrodt group have temporarily closed bookings for LCL / FCL from the rest of the world that transship over Jebel Ali to Qatar and direct airfreight to Doha. We are working on alternative solutions to ensure movement of your cargo in compliance with above guidelines. We expect to communicate these solutions to you over the coming 48 hours. Please take note that cargo in transit will be delayed in delivery. Our office in Qatar will be in direct contact with the consignee.
