Subject: Update South Africa port operations and impact on Europe-South Africa (SRX) service
Dear MOL Customer,
As a result of last week’s storm in Durban major damage was caused to the port infrastructure. The terminal is currently working to 65% of the normal crane capacity. In addition poor weather conditions particularly in Durban and the Eastern Cape (East London, Port Elizabeth and Coega) continue to hamper port operations. The reduced performance related to damaged terminal installations and poor weather negatively affects our services.
In order to deal with this situation contingencies have to be worked out and revised again as the situation remains very fluid. In order to ensure you are fully up-to-date on events we will regularly issue updates such as this one.
Below an overview of the contingency measures decided on for our Europe-South Africa (SRX) service:
We sincerely regret the inconvenience caused and we will do the utmost to assist you to the best of our abilities.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact your local sales office. Contact details can be found on our website www.molpower.com.
