CMA CGM imposes discharge restrictions on Port of Douala


CMA CGM has announced that due to ongoing congestion in Douala, Cameroon, the terminal is imposing restrictions on discharge of reefer containers.

These restrictions stipulate that containers can be discharged from vessels only if delivery under tackle is ensured.

It also stipulates that containers idling on terminal must be evacuated.

Under such circumstances, CMA CGM has decided to stop accepting new reefer bookings to Douala until further notice.

CMA CGM have also directed that, for containers at sea, shippers must ensure that the consignee agrees to take delivery under tackle.

As per terms and conditions of CMA CGM Bill of Lading, the carrier reserves the right to discharge cargo in the alternative Port of Kribi.

Haulage to the destination will be on receiver’s account.

In June 2022, Bolloré Transport & Logistics Cameroon (Bolloré) opened a new logistics hub in the industrial Port of Kribi – a modern base designed for both import and export of goods across the country’s sub-region.
