Update: Hapag-Lloyd resumes service to Beirut
The German shipping company Hapag-Lloyd said in its latest news that Beirut’s container terminal has only suffered minor losses and has resumed operations.
The company announced: "After these good news, we will immediately resume service to the port of Beirut, Lebanon."
According to the notification, the first ship to call Beirut served by the Hapag-Rotwan Express (LEX) is Mona Lisa (2031W voyage), which will set sail on August 14, 2020. It will also deliver imported goods from Fleur N (2030W voyage), ignore Beirut and unload at Damietta.
East Med Express (EME) service will also resume the call, and CMA CGM Musset (sailing 031S/033N) will be the first ship on August 15, 2020.
The shipping company added that it has also restarted accepting cargo bookings from Beirut.
"We are still evaluating the extent of damage to the containers in the port at the time of the explosion," Hapag-Lloyd further said.
The explosion last week completely destroyed the Hapag-Lloyd office in Beirut. Fortunately, all Hapag-Lloyd employees and representatives are safe and sound.
At the same time, after a fatal explosion, the first ships began to call Beirut.
According to the GAC, the British Royal Navy's survey ship HMS Enterprise was anchored at Pier 13 of Beirut Port on August 10, and a small container ship was anchored at Pier 16.
