March 02nd 2023 - Update 8

A.P. Moller – Maersk teams are continuing to keep a close eye on developments at the Port of Iskenderun, including working closely with port officials to understand the extent of the terminal damage and which customer cargo may be affected.

At this time, the port remains closed until further notice, but we have been frequently liaising with terminal authorities for updates on accessibility to understand how soon container inspections can be initiated. We have now been informed that inspections will commence shortly and be conducted in scheduled batches.

As soon as the schedule has been finalised and received from the Port of Iskenderun – documenting your inspection date and time and contact details of our surveyors – we will communicate it with you. The cargo owner’s authorised personnel and insurance representatives will be required to be at the port when the inspection takes place.

When you receive details, please kindly inform your representatives and confirm your attendance with our surveyor.

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout such a challenging situation. Rest assured, we are doing all in our power and control to resolve this matter as swiftly and smoothly as possible.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your local Maersk representative.
