Reefer Advisory – Coronavirus OPS Update
Dear Valued Customer,
Please be informed that in view of the current situation in China due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Chinese terminals are faced with congestion with no more available plugs.
As a consequence, reefer containers may be discharged in an alternative port without notice and - subject to availability - be on forwarded to the original intended port of destination.
Bill of lading page one Definitions clause 10 “matters affecting performance”, all additional costs, including but not limited to storage, demurrage and plugging costs at the alternative discharge port or extra on forwarding costs, shall be for Merchant's account and payable upon delivery. The carrier shall have no liability whatsoever for any loss or damage to cargo resulting from circumstances totally beyond CMA CGM’s control, which risks and costs shall be for Merchant’s account.
We sincerely regret the issue caused by such situation. We shall not fail to keep you informed as the situation develops.
We appreciate your support of our CMA CGM PORTUGAL services.
As Agents for CMA CGM S.A.
