Customer Advisory: Impacts of Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr

Please be advised that Ramadan will tentatively begin at sundown on June 6th, 2016 and end on July 5th, 2016. The actual dates will depend upon the time of the official sighting of the new moon. Eid Al Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan, is celebrated for 3-4 days, with actual dates varying for each country depending on the region. Movement of cargo will continue during Ramadan at a lower velocity due to reduced schedules and observed reduced office hours. Cargo movement will stop during Eid due to Customs Office and border closures in CENTCOM.

The table below outlines the Maersk Line office closures per country for the holidays:
