"German container line Hapag Lloyd said it resumed cargo business with Iran in late November only via feeder ships from Jebel Ali. 'It is necessary for shippers to sign a letter of indemnity confirming that their business does not violate any still existing and relevant embargo regulations or sanctions,' a Hapag Lloyd spokesman said." (Reuters, "Container shipping lines returning to Iran tread cautiously." 1/7/2016). 


"German container shipping group Hapag-Lloyd said it did not accept cargo for Bandar Abbas nor any consignments for other Tidewater-run ports. It said the smaller container port of Bushehr, some 900 km north of Bandar Abbas, was not managed by Tidewater. 'We have moved only a few containers through Bushehr by feeder vessels which are not our own vessels. We do not have an own service calling there,' a spokeswoman said. Hapag-Lloyd's previous Bandar Abbas service had been jointly operated with South Korea's Hyundai Merchant Marine. A source familiar with the matter said Hyundai had reduced its shipping service to Iran and was closely monitoring the situation."
