Temporary suspension of our TBL service to Bujumbura, Burundi

Social unrest has further escalated in Burundi, and the security situation in Bujumbura and in number of provinces is seriously deteriorating.

Yesterday, all Northern zones of Bujumbura were under heavy fighting. The National Road RN 1, the main corridor to Bujumbura, is no longer safe.

Cities located North West of Tanzania near the Burundi border (Kabanga, Ngara, Kahama, Karagwe...) and Kigoma corridor are also on high alert with ongoing riots.

Therefore, CMA CGM Group informs its customers that with immediate effect, no booking will be accepted to Bujumbura until further notice.

Concerning current shipments at sea or at Dar Es Salaam gateway:

  • CMA CGM cannot guarantee the carrier haulage at final destination
  • Relevant charges (storage, demurrage) and other charges are for clients' account

We will not fail to keep you informed as soon as the Dar-Es-Salaam - Bujumbura corridor will be safe again, allowing us to resume our TBL service to this destination.
