Moving to Qatar – Shipping Services Suspended

Abels have been advised of the suspension of shipping services into Hamad Port in Qatar.

Arab countries have imposed shipping restrictions on trade with Qatar, this will also effect the movement of containers of household goods and personal effects in and out of Qatar.

Shipping lines normally tranship cargoes between the United Arab Emirates port of Jebel Ali and Hamad Port in Qatar.

Update: 08th June 2017:

Please be advised that all carriers have suspended their shipping services into Hamad Port in Qatar.

This is because the United Arab Emirates have suspended diplomatic connections with Qatar and as a result the port of Jebel Ali will not handle any vessels calling Qatar.

Shipping Carriers are currently considering alternative methods for Qatar so that they can resume a Hamad Port service.

For customers moving to or from Qatar, please call your Abels customer liaison on their direct line or call head office on +44(0)1842 816600 or email
