Closure of Port Rashid to cargo ships causes congestion at Jebel Ali

24 July 2008

Gulf Agency Co, P&I Correspondent in the United Arab Emirates, has issued the attached bulletin in which they advise that cargo ships are not presently being allowed into Port Rashid, which, they understand, is being converted into a cruise terminal. The closure of Port Rashid to cargo ships is reportedly causing delays and congestion in Jebel Ali.
An official notice of this development from the port authority is awaited and the Gulf Agency Company will advise further thereafter.
