Moving to Morocco – Casablanca Port Congestion

For customers planning on moving to Morocco, we have been provided with information from our agents about delays at the port of Casablanca in Morocco.

The port of Casablanca, which handles almost 80% of containers arriving in Morocco, is currently congested.

In addition, local customs authorities have increased the number of physical container inspections. Customs officials now search the entire container, not just a sample. Shipments arriving from China are especially targeted, although containers arriving from other destinations are also being searched.

Customer should be aware that the congestion at Casablanca may lead to additional demurrage and port storage charges.

For customers moving to Morocco please call your Abels customer liaison on their direct line or call head office on +44(0)1842 816600 or email shipping@abels.co.uk
