Georgia – New Customs Restriction

January 5, 2016

Dear Customer,


We would like to inform you that Poti customs has implemented a new rule with immediate effect for container door handles which carry bolt seals do not have factory-furnished rivets but are replaced by screw bolts or other substitution tools.
These containers won´t be allowed for discharge from any vessel or, if operationally not possible, suspended and heavy fines will be imposed.
Please find below an illustrating picture



For further information please contact your local Hapag-Lloyd office.
Kind regards,
Hapag-Lloyd Italy Srl
