Aqaba Container Terminal Strike

Update 05– July 18, 2014 / 1202 hrs (12:02pm):

  • The Maersk Wisconsin will omit Aqaba this weekend
  • The Coast Guard will not allow the vessel to sail without confirmation that the generator is fixed; vessel is currently in Jeddah and repair time is unknown
  • Calling Aqaba late is not an option due to the FIFO (First-In, First-Out) queue which would further delay the service rotation since there is a lengthy berthing queue
