We would like to bring to your attention the 90 days rule for containers in Angola as we now see customs is actively confiscating all containers past the 90 days.
“According to Angolan Regulations each container discharged should be re-exported within 90 days after date of arrival at Angolan Port, if not, the Unit, whether empty or loaded with cargo, can be confiscated by the Custom Authorities and the Unit including the contents can be sold in Auction.
Therefore, in case the container has not be returned to the line in 60 days the Merchant will be held responsible, and charged for any demurrage and will also be held responsible and can be charged for the replacement value of the unit”.
If you have any questions left please do not hesitate to contact us.
