COUNTRY UPDATES

Kuwait

The Eid Al Fitr holiday is expected from 24 to 26 May, and during this period we expect some disruptions to shipments into the country due to the closure of major ports, airports and customs authorities. Kuwait has announced a “total” lockdown, starting from Sunday 10 May until 30 May, during which time all but essential private sector activities will be suspended. The government lockdown of the two industrial areas, Jeleeb Al-Shuyoukh and Mahboula within of Kuwait city will also continue for the next two weeks. Saudi Arabia is only allowing essential cargo to transit through its land border, restricting cross-border road freight services from Kuwait to the UAE, Bahrain, Jordan and Oman. Domestic road freight has been impacted by capacity and time constraints, as all nonessential road freight must be delivered before the 4.00pm curfew. Airfreight cargo continues to be impacted by capacity constraints due to the suspension of passenger flights. However, cargo terminals and ports are operating as normal.
