Dangerous Goods Restrictions For Israel’s Ports

October 17, 2023

As the conflict in Israel and Gaza continues to escalate, the Israeli primary ports of Haifa and Ashdod have now restricted dangerous goods arrivals.

As things stand, the suspension of the vast majority of flights means that airlines are not accepting cargo bookings, while ocean freight continues to move relatively normally in and out of Israel.

However, dangerous goods have now been flagged for restrictions. Vessels carrying hazardous cargo would need to be kept offshore due to the increased risk from rocket attacks, which would result in severe consequences if they were hit directly, especially when in port.

Our current understanding is that this does not necessarily mean all dangerous goods, and acceptance ‘may’ be granted to specific items that provide very low risk.

Evolution Forwarding specialise in dangerous goods movements, by air, ocean and road. We provide complete solutions for packing, documentation, compliance and training for dangerous goods products, including lithium batteries.
