Temporary Suspension of Booking for Dangerous Goods Shipments Destined, Relayed or Loaded at Thailand Ports

Dear Valued Customer,

We are writing to update you on the temporary suspension of booking of dangerous goods shipments for Thailand.

The Maritime Department of Thailand has extended the grace period for the new regulation, Announcement No. 273/2553, which was described in our earlier advisory of 5 January 2011 by another 60 days. This means that the regulation is now applicable for shipments departing or arriving at Thailand ports on and after 12 April 2011.

As such, APL is now be able to accept bookings for dangerous goods shipments destined, relayed or loaded at Thailand ports before 12 April 2011. Shipments after 12 April 2011 will be suspended.

If you need more information, please contact your local APL representative.
