Notice To Shippers Russian / Cargo Embargo


Dear Clients,


We have been made aware that the President of Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, has now signed the Executive Order that was implemented on the 7th of August 2014 by Prime Minister, Dmitri Medvedev, prohibiting the importation on Russian territory of some specific cargo from European Union, United States of America, Australia, Canada and Norway origin.


The Russian embargo will last 12 months starting the 7th of August 2014 and prohibits the importation of beef, pork, fruits and vegetables, poultry, fish, cheese, milk and dairy products, from the above countries, excluding baby food products.


Consequently ANL are forced into a position to stop taking any further bookings for the banned commodities as they will not be allowed to enter Russian territory. Cargo currently on the water and in transit to Russia will be discharged at appropriate ports and we will seek further instructions from the individual shippers accordingly.
