BOOKINGS TO/FROM TANGIERS (Local Cargo)
We would like to inform that a severe Terminal Strike at TANGER MED (EurogateTerminal), which started on October 11th, is currently bringing all Terminal activities to a halt.
At this stage, even though the situation is monitored on daily basis, there is no clear sign of any resumption of work.
In this respect all worldwide bookings destined to Tangiers (local cargo) or originated from Tangiers will be suspended - until further notice -
As an alternative - the bookings can be taken to/from CASABLANCA.
We would like to remind you that CMA CGM is attending TANGER MED through SIRIUS and SAFRAN 2 services on weekly sailings from the main ports in Brazil and Plate.
We deeply regret these inconveniences caused by these events which are beyond our control and we do thank you for your understanding.
Should the situation changes, we will keep you duly informed.
If additional information or clarification is required, please do not hesitate in contacting your sales representative or local office.
