Tragedy in Beirut,

Dear all,

The news about Beirut will undoubtedly have already reached you. A terrible accident has happened in Beirut.

Yesterday, a tremendous blast took place in the Port of Beirut, Lebanon. All our agents and contact and representatives are safe and sound. Given the damage that is being done, this is a miracle.

The cause of the explosion and the extent of the damage is still under investigation. Meanwhile, the Port of Beirut has put all operations on hold, and access to the area is not permitted.

As far as we know at this time, no shipments were damaged booked with Explect. We decided to roll over all shipments that were to be shipped. We will inform you personally about the shipments that were on their way as soon as possible.

We kindly ask for your patience while we are assessing the situation in efforts to provide a solution for the affected cargo. As a precautionary measure, we are temporarily not accepting any cargo to and from Beirut.

As soon as there are new developments, we will share them with you and reopen booking accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience, which has occurred or will occur in the future due to this terrible accident.

At this moment, our hearts and thoughts go out to the people of Beirut – especially to all those who have lost family members and friends.
