This past weekend, Maersk, Cosco and two other carriers, each having been suspended from operations in Nigerian ports, were again allowed to get on with their activities. Monday, Maersk told ShippingWatch that the Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) had lifted the suspension, and NPA writes on its website that this now also applies to the other carriers.

According to NPA, the carriers now have two weeks to comply with requirements for securing conditions for a "sustainable relationship". Such requirements include increasing holding bay capacity, in which empty container volume between 1,800 and 7,500 teu can be stored.
