Web Alert: Bad weather closes Algerian ports
01 February 2019
Most of Algeria's ports have been closed to traffic as a result of bad weather. Ports closed include Arzew, Oran, Mostaganem, Skikda and Tenes.
Vessels which were already in sheltered berths have been able to remain at quay, while all other vessels have been obliged to sail to anchorage pending calmer conditions.
Members should be aware that considerable congestion is building up in the ports and delays in berthing are very likely.
Members are advised to check individual ports for the current situation and to discuss alternative arrangements with shippers and receivers where possible.
