Blank Sailings - Minimal impact for CargoGulf Liner Services

Blank Sailings - Minimal impact for CargoGulf Liner Services

11 May 2020

Despite the high number of blank sailings ex Europe to the Middle East, CargoGulf is well positioned to provide regular NVOCC FCL services to our clients.

Due to the slot charter agreements with several vessel providers, CargoGulf’s SOC service ex Europe is running unhindered from all European and UK main ports into the Arabian Gulf. We still offer 2 sailings per week from Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, UK and France.  

COVID-19 had an impact on how cargo is booked. Space is less, and bookings are made in advance in order to ensure guaranteed space and equipment. However, with long term planning both space and equipment is available through the CargoGulf Liner agency network in Europe / UK.
