Update on Qatar

Dear Valued Customer,

Please be advised that as of yesterday 5th June 2017, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and today 6th June 2017, Yemen cut diplomatic ties with Qatar.

Consequently, DP World Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi Terminals no longer accept cargo to/from Qatar ports (including transshipment cargo). In compliance with the above guidelines we are ceasing cargo acceptance between Qatar and the above countries with immediate effect.

Further to above, we have temporarily closed bookings for cargo from rest of the world that transship over Jebel Ali. We are working on alternative solutions to ensure movement of your cargo in compliance with above guidelines. We expect to communicate these solutions to you over the coming 48 hours.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your local sales or customer service representative.

Best Regards,

Maersk Line, Limited

Attention Military Household Goods Customers – New Booking Codes

As a customer of Maersk that moves US Military Household Goods, we understand that time is one of your most valuable assets. In our commitment to continually enhance your customer experience, Maersk has made improvements that will give you more flexibility to create and manage bookings by leveraging our new online booking platform.

Register now at: https://my.maerskline.com/webuser/registration

Starting on January 15, 2017 you will now be able to book US Military Household Goods online, 24 hours a day 7 days a week – no more emails or phone calls to have a booking created. In addition to saving you time creating and managing shipments, you will receive faster booking confirmations and, by saving templates, can quickly submit bookings for your high volume corridors with the proper level of detail every time.

Along with saving you time and giving you more flexibility to create and manage bookings online we have also created a specific set of HS codes that will now be used to clearly identify US Government cargo at the time of booking. These new HS codes will simplify the booking process and provide Maersk and our customers’ better transparency concerning US Government cargo while also ensuring better alignment with Cargo Preference rules and regulations.

Starting January 15, 2017 all US Military Household Goods shipments must be booked with the following HS code:

 

HS Code HS Code Description
999991 US Flag – US Military Household Goods

 

Failure to provide this information accurately at the time of booking will result in a commercial non-US Flag shipment which moves under standard commercial terms and conditions. Additionally, a US Flag bill of Lading will only be created for the HS codes mentioned in the table above.

For any questions or clarifications, please contact sales@mllnet.com  or your local Maersk sale representative.  Any booking or rating questions should be addressed to: usflag.support@maersk.com
