Maersk suspends Egypt port terminal operations
COPENHAGEN Jan 31 - (Reuters) - Danish shipping and oil group A.P. Moller-Maersk (MAERSKb.CO) has suspended its Egyptian port terminal operations and closed its shipping offices in the country rocked by turmoil, the company said on Monday.
A.P. Moller-Maersk, whose Maersk Line is the world's biggest container shipping company, said the unrest in Egypt had affected its commercial and operational activities but all its employees in the country are accounted for.
"Today, there are no terminal operations in Egypt and Maersk Line, Safmarine and Damco offices are closed," A.P. Moller-Maersk said in a statement.
"The Suez Canal is open for traffic," Maersk added.
