Central African Republic

Update 3 – April 12, 2013 / 0638 hrs (06:38am):

  • Though traffic restarted on April 8, 2013, the trucks that left were released on the condition they be escorted from the border of Cameroon/Central African Republic to Bangui by the army
  • Because this is a consignee arranged special service, arranged with the army, if the consignee does not arrange the special service the haulage can still be arranged but at the consignee’s full risk
  • The consignee would need to sign a letter to agree to take the full responsibility of this risk
  • Bookings are still accepted and the customs offices have re-opened but are not fully operational
