Following Bulletin 942, we have been advised that the vessel in the middle of disputes, causing severe congestion at the port of Nouakchott has been moved from the berth.
The vessel in question had been blocking multiple berths, causing congestion of up to 27 vessels whilst the labour dispute was ongoing. Now that the berths are free, port operations can start to resume.
The labour dispute is still ongoing.
