June 06, 2017

Amidst concerns of regional destabilization, several middle-eastern countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Bahrain have decided to cut diplomatic ties with Qatar. The move will halt all land, air, and sea cargo shipments with Qatar as of June 6, 2017.

Qatar Diplomats have 48 hours and its citizens have 14 days to leave middle-eastern countries participating in the action. Moreover, customers with import or export shipments should prepare for delays as well as additional port storage, demurrage, and various other charges which may be assessed. Some shipments may need to be re-routed until another option can be ascertained.
