Plan to fill Port of Beirut’s Basin 4 sparks controversy

Tue Dec 16 08:51:50 CET 2014 arnekiel

A plan by the Beirut Port’s Port Authority to fill the facility’s fourth basin has caused an uproar among truckers and port workers, who say the project is illegal and will cost hundreds of people their jobs. A lawsuit has been filed against the Port Authority as workers claim the project violates a presidential decree. But the Port Authority argues that the move is part of a necessary expansion for the future of the facility. The plan to fill the fourth basin is the second phase in a wider project to create more space for container storage at the port. The first stage, completed last year, involved a major extension of Quai 16. The long-term goal is to make the Beirut Port a transshipment hub, a facility which expedites transport by allowing large shipping lines to drop off containers that are later distributed by smaller vessels. Annual container traffic at the port has increased from 300,000 to 1 million TEUs (20-foot equivalent unit or more commonly known as 20-footlong containers) over the course of 10 years. This was partly driven by the closure of Syria’s ports due to the ongoing conflict. Shipping lines pay the Port Authority $1.50/day to store containers, so there has been an increase in revenue due to the traffic. Today containers make up 70-80 percent of cargo coming into the port. The head of the Beirut Port Authority Hasan Kraytem said the uptick was part of a global trend. “All over the world these have become the favorite way of moving shipments,” Kraytem told The Daily Star. “Much of the cargo that used to come in general cargo … today is coming in containers.” But the port’s truckers, ship chandlers and shipping agents make a living off of noncontainer traffic, i.e. general cargo.

Lebanon enacts boycott regulations that prohibit/restrict free trade with Israel

Mon Nov 18 11:57:41 CET 2013 arnekiel

As a result of the Arab-Israeli conflict, some Arab states, including Lebanon, have enacted a number of boycott regulations that prohibit/restrict free trade with Israel and Israeli interests. Under these boycott regulations, vessels who call at Israeli ports are at risk of being blacklisted and prohibited from entry to Arab ports. In Lebanon, blacklisted vessels are usually detained and fined. Members trading with Lebanese ports should obtain a written certificate from the Arab Boycott Bureau of Israel’s Beirut Office confirming that the vessel is not blacklisted. This requirement has now become compulsory and it is important for Members to obtain said certificate in advance of the vessel’s call to Lebanon to enable them to take whatever pre-emptive measure is necessary in case the vessel is blacklisted.
