egypt - imports only against letter of credit
Egypt has banned the payment method "cash against documents". As a result, imports must be settled using a letter of credit (L/C). The decree provides for a few exceptions, e.g. for courier consignments and for imports up to a value of USD 5,000. Please coordinate the procedure with your customers in Egypt in good time and open an L/C if necessary.
Your contact at Lamprecht Pharma Logistics Ltd. will of course be happy to answer any questions you may have.

what you need to know about transport insurance
If transported goods are damaged or stolen en route, the question arises as to who is liable for the damage. Naturally, the focus is on the forwarder, simply because he usually has the contractual relationship with his customer (forwarding contract). However, the forwarder is not liable for every transport damage, and even if he is liable, the contractual liability limits must be taken into account. In many cases, the owner of the goods does not receive compensation from the forwarder - or at least not the full amount of the damage! It is clear that this is bound to cause trouble in the relationship between the customer and the forwarder, but what can be done?learn more Close

Difficult situation for air freight in China
The new outbreak of the Corona pandemic in China is mostly under control. However, the impact on the air cargo industry continues to grow, mainly due to the strict prevention measures. The Chinese government gives the Covid virus "zero tolerance"!learn more Close
In addition to the two measures mentioned below, the ban on P 2 C aircraft and the reduction of turnaround time, the following new measures apply:
Aircraft crews are no longer allowed to stay overnight in China, they must leave the same day/night. No overnight stays for crews and aircraft. This means that airlines will have to use two crews. The direct and immediate consequence is that airlines are cancelling flights because they have a serious crew/storage problem. Shanghai airport, for example, has only used just over 33% of its capacity in recent weeks.
All airside and terminal workers are subject to "Triple 7" checks, i.e. :
a. 7 days work and stay in a designated hotel, no return home.
b. 7 days quarantine in a designated hotel different from the above.
c. 7 days quarantine at home.
This has shrunk the workforce by almost 50%! Some airlines have decided to stop carrying import cargo to Shanghai so that priority can be given to loading export cargo. Others are not accepting export cargo to give priority to import cargo!
All these measures are expected to continue for a few more weeks. The airline industry will continue to be severely affected. Less capacity means higher tariffs! Air cargo volumes have more or less reached the same level as before the pandemic, but capacity has dropped considerably.
Situation sea freight worldwide
For the second time within a few months, a container port in the People's Republic of China shut down its operations in the middle of last week due to a corona infection. This time it hit Ningbo.
The renewed closure of a major Chinese port is fuelling concerns of further disruption to the already very tense global supply chains.learn more Close
Ningbo is China's second largest container port after Shanghai . The volume handled is more than twice as high as in the seaport of Hamburg. There are currently around 30 container ships waiting outside the port.
On a positive note, the number of pirate attacks on the high seas decreased significantly in the first half of the year. According to surveys by the International Maritime Bureau, there were 68 pirate attacks compared to 98 incidents in the same period last year. However, the issue of piracy remains acute among seafarers on board ships, who are already facing great hardship during the Corona period.
From 1st September, 2021, the new Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB) season will start in Australia and New Zealand. For cargoes/containers from most European countries, fumigation/heat treatment will be required from this date until the end of April 2022.learn more Close
Each individual sea freight shipment must be specifically treated to the standards set by the Australian authorities.
Unlike Australia, there are no regulations for individual shipments or HS codes on the part of the New Zealand authorities, so it is expected that all loaded containers will be subjected to heat treatment. However, there are exceptions to this which do not require treatment, e.g. pharmaceutical products, textiles, foodstuffs etc.

A total of 1.8 billion passengers flew on scheduled flights in 2020, 60.2% less than in the previous year. The most frequent international travellers were US citizens (45.7 million), followed by Britons (40.8 million) and Germans (30.8 million).
One million jobs are said to have been lost in the airline industry.
However, the air freight business declined by only 21.4% worldwide.
capacity bottlenecks at beijing and shanghai airports
Due to staffing problems of the airline handling agents in Beijing and Shanghai, caused by a COVID outbreak, several airlines have announced reduced cargo capacity to Shanghai and Beijing. Most freighters will continue to operate as scheduled, but with reduced cargo. In order to avoid a backlog, transport options will be restricted, which will probably lead to rate increases by the airlines due to the even further reduced capacities.
It is not possible to predict how long this situation will last.
Please contact your contact at Lamprecht Pharma Logistics Ltd. if you have an air freight shipment from or to Beijing or Shanghai. We will be happy to advise you on the most suitable alternative solution.

update congestion sea ports
As reported earlier, the port of Yantian in the southern Chinese metropolis of Shenzhen had to close for a fortnight due to a Corona outbreak. The effects are more serious than after the closure of the Suez Canal: containers stand for up to 23 days instead of being loaded onto ships. In Yantian/Shenzhen, 10% of Chinese export goods are normally loaded. So Shenzhen is perhaps the most important trans-shipment centre of globalisation. In the last two weeks, 298 container ships with a capacity of over three million containers were unable to call at Shenzhen. Over 357,000 TEU's could not be loaded.
In the meantime, port operations could be resumed, but the ramp-up continues (currently about 70%).
In Germany, too, the seaports, especially Hamburg, are completely overloaded. Maersk, for example, reports that Hamburg will not be called at for the next four weeks and the cargoes will be unloaded in Bremerhaven instead.
The bottleneck in southern China is putting even more strain on the already very tense sea freight situation. The same applies to the sometimes massive traffic jams at the ports. There will therefore be further delays. Massive space problems unfortunately continue to be the order of the day, and as a serious consequence there will be further price increases in freight traffic.
Hapag Lloyd made an interesting comment. Normally, Hapag Lloyd moves about 80,000 TEUs (20' box containers) a week from Asia. At present, however, they are overbooked by up to 15 times! The imbalance is far too great! On average, container ships have to wait 1 to 1 ½ days for clearance, now it is more than 3 days on average! The average container turnaround has also increased significantly. Before the crisis, it took around 50 days for a container to be ready for a next tour. Today we are at 60 days!
challenges in sea freight - recommendations for exporters: corona pandemic reveals systemic flaws
As a result of the Corona pandemic, massive problems have been manifesting themselves in global sea freight transport since April 2020. Claudio Licci, Director Sea Freight of our parent company Lamprecht Transport Ltd., reports on this and gives concrete recommendations for Swiss exporters.learn more Close
While the difficulties at the beginning of the crisis were mainly limited to imports from Asia, today all trade lanes are under pressure: freight companies are struggling with undercapacity, overcrowded ports, congested container terminals and insufficient infrastructure.
Container ships are getting bigger and bigger and can already load up to 23,500 TEU (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit; standard container). When several ships of this dimension arrive at a seaport at the same time, it causes major logistical problems - even in "normal" times. The ports of Singapore and Los Angeles/Long Beach, for example, are often heavily congested due to the large volume of containers. Singapore is enormously important as a hub for the Southeast Asian and Australian markets; the two ports on California's south coast handle about 40 per cent of US sea freight and are crucial for transpacific traffic. No wonder, the punctuality of ships has sunk to an all-time low: while 65 per cent of ships worldwide still arrived on time in the spring of 2020, a year later it was less than 35 per cent. Delays of up to six weeks - for example, on the route to China - are unfortunately no longer uncommon.
Due to the Corona pandemic, major terminals have repeatedly been cancelled in recent months. And there seems to be no sign of a turnaround: A fortnight ago, one of the world's largest port facilities, that of Yantian in the southern Chinese city of Shenzen, was summarily closed after new Covid 19 infections were registered. Hundreds of container ships had to be diverted, causing delays of up to 14 days in imports and exports. Countries like India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are currently in a partial lockdown: although the ports are open, there is a lack of staff in the terminals. The situation is also worsening at the companies responsible for road transport because many truck drivers have dropped out. With the rising infection figures in Malaysia and Vietnam, there was bad news from Southeast Asia again this week.
The Corona pandemic has not only caused acute problems in sea freight, but has also brought to light a whole series of systemic deficiencies. Among the biggest challenges are the lack of container equipment as well as shipping space. In April 2020, 551 ships with a capacity of around 3 million TEU were decommissioned. After the shipowners put these ships back into service, the corresponding capacities were available to the market again in the fourth quarter of last year. But because almost all companies around the globe are expanding their inventories - and because consumption has already picked up strongly again - demand far exceeds the supply of shipping space. As a result, waiting times of four to five weeks often have to be accepted. The major trade lanes to the USA and Asia are particularly affected by these delays. The situation has been further aggravated by the blockade of the Suez Canal, which has led to delivery delays of 20 days. The "Ever Given" of the Evergreen shipping company is still out of service after being seized by the Egyptian authorities; the 20,000 TEU of this ship are missing in imports and exports.
In the short and medium term, not much will change in terms of capacity - which is why the shipping companies shy away from making clear forecasts. The fact is that the shipping companies regulate the available space better today than ever before. And it is also clear that additional containers or more ships would further strain the already precarious infrastructure of many ports. It is therefore not surprising that freight rates in all trade lanes have climbed to new highs. And prices will continue to rise sharply: Especially for sea freight to the USA and South America, massive increases must be expected in July.
The problems mentioned above will accompany international sea freight traffic for some time to come. Experts agree that the situation will not change before the end of the year and may even persist until after the Chinese New Year (1. 2. 2022). The reasons for this less optimistic outlook are manifold:
- Q3 and Q4 are considered the strongest quarters of the year in the retail sector. Not only is Golden Week in China (1-7 October 2021) just around the corner, but also the year-end spurt (imports and exports for the 2021 Christmas trade have already begun).
- Consumer sentiment is already very good again in the USA and Asia and is also picking up in Europe.
- The economic stimulus programmes launched by various countries will tie up large transport capacities.
- The existing overflow of containers to be transported must be reduced in the coming months before conditions return to normal.
There is justified hope that the situation on the labour market will also ease with the progress of the vaccination programmes in the individual countries. As soon as port workers and truck drivers can resume their work and carry it out without major restrictions, the market will gradually return to normal. Meanwhile, prices for sea freight will remain at a high level.
Although the Northeast Passage is navigable between June and December, it is not used by international sea freight traffic - with very few exceptions. The main reasons for this are the lack of safety (shallow draught!) and the lack of infrastructure along the route, but mainly considerations of a political and ecological nature. A valid alternative would be rail transport from Asia to Europe - but here, too, capacities are booked up for weeks. In addition, prices in this segment quickly adjust to those of sea freight. Because overseas passenger flights are still rare, there is also a lack of capacity in air freight - although more and more cargo aircraft are being used. While prices for air freight to Asia have more or less settled at pre-Corona levels, rates for shipments to the USA or South America are now around three times higher than before the pandemic.
- Talk to your customers and suppliers: This will enable you to organise your transports in good time.
- Plan much longer lead times: Short-term bookings are now practically impossible or a matter of pure luck.
- Talk to your freight forwarder in good time: Good forecasts help them to book the space they need in good time.
- Check possible options: Do not always run your transports via the northern ports - the southern ports are a good alternative.

new system for advance cargo information for ocean freight to egypt
As of 1st July, 2021, the new information system for the advanced registration of ocean freight cargo before the shipping date, through article 39 of the new Customs Law No. 207, will be mandatory.learn more Close
The “ACI” or “Advance Cargo Information” aims to simplify cargo clearance procedures, to ensure verification of the guarantees of importers and the exporters, as well as to accept the import of certain types of cargoes or prohibit same from entering the Egyptian market.
- The importer or his agent has to register on the electronic portal of the National Single Window for Foreign Trade Facilitation “NAFEZA”.
- Prior to launch a shipment to Egypt, there is need to upload cargo information to receive the Preliminary Customs Registration Number called “ACID” or “Advance”. The process of uploading the cargo information must be repeated for each shipment separately!
- The exporter will use the dedicated platform of CargoX solution for blockchain document transfer in which he has to create an account. The ACID must be mentioned on each shipping document to comply. This will enable proper traceability.
- Important: Your cargo will not be discharged from the carrying vessel and will be returned to you at your own expenses if you did not comply with the ACID.
The implementation already started on trial basis as of 1st April, 2021, whereas the system shall be fully in force as of 1st July, 2021, for all ocean freight shipments.
Your contact at Lamprecht Pharma Logistics will be happy to answer any questions you may have with regard to this new regulation.

Pharma Logistics Days Basel - 20th/21st October, 2021
After a remarkable first Pharma Logistics Day 2018 in Pratteln, the extraordinarily successful 2nd Pharma Logistics Day 2019 at Messe Basel and the very positive feedback from visitors and exhibitors, a third event will take place in 2021 - now on two days, on 20th and 21st October, 2021 in Basel.learn more Close
This event is organized by an interdisciplinary (neutral) committee and will take place during "ILMAC 2021" in a separate hall at Messe Basel in Switzerland. All visitors to ILMAC are also welcome to the Pharma Logistics Days. ILMAC, which takes place every two years, is the most important trade fair for the pharmaceutical industry in Switzerland. Further information on ILMAC can be found here.
You will find detailed information on this two-day event in the Factsheet.
With Messe Basel we have a partner with great organizational professionalism. Nevertheless, the 3rd Pharma Logistics Days should also retain their familiar and authentic touch.
Once again, all "players" in pharmaceutical logistics are invited to exhibit, such as:
- road transport companies
- sea freight shipping lines
- suppliers of GPS, data logging and / or tracking devices
- suppliers of active and passive containers and thermal blankets
- the packaging solutions industry
Further information on the forum, the workshops and presentations and the planned “Pharma Logistics School Day” will follow.
With your registration you do not take any risk: There are no costs if the trade fair / event has to be cancelled due to an official decision, as a result of the corona pandemic, due to a lack of visitor registrations or for other reasons.
Of course, a cancellation (if at all necessary) would be made as late as possible, but as early as possible so that all exhibitors can organize themselves accordingly. Please read the general terms and conditions and the special provisions deviating from the exhibitor regulations.
As soon as the portal is open for visitor registration, which will be the case at the end of May/beginning of June, we will keep all exhibitors informed of the progress.
The Pharma Logistics Days committee would be delighted to welcome you to Basel on 20th and 21st October, 2021.
Please do not hesitate to send your further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be answered by return.

Suez Canal blocked since March 23, 2021
Important information for our sea freight customers about the blockade in the Suez Canallearn more Close
Since Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021, the ship “Ever Given” has been blocking the Suez Canal with around 17,000 containers on board, thus the most important trade route between Asia and Europe. The consequences of this blockade will affect the supply chains of all driving areas.
The rescue work is in full swing - information from the press and social media differ; we are talking about delays of a few days up to possibly several weeks. What are the possible scenarios for all those involved in the flow of goods?
- Bypassing the Suez Canal
A possible alternative route is the detour via Africa. The longer transit time of approx. 7-12 days further results in massive additional costs for fuel. The next few hours around the progress of the salvage work will decide whether the major shipping companies consider the detour via Africa.
- Delays after the blockade
An average of around 50 vessels pass through the Suez Canal every day. As soon as the free passage is guaranteed again, the reduction of the backlog will take several days, possibly a few weeks.
- Port Congestion
Overloading of the terminals in Europe and Asia must be expected. As soon as the Suez Canal is freely passable, the ships will head for the port terminals at a greatly increased rate. The loading and unloading of the ships will drag on.
- Adjustment of the ship timetables
It is to be expected that the shipping companies will adapt the ships' timetables to the circumstances. Possible scenarios are omitting ports ("port omits") or changing the port sequence.
- Blank sailings
It is very likely that the shipping companies will withdraw ships from other sailing areas and use them for Asia-Europe traffic. This in turn has an impact on the affected trades, in which the vessels will be missing. The consequences are "blank sailings" (interruption of the weekly departures).
- Shipments in the coming weeks from Europe and Asia
The currently blocked vessels are all intended for loading in the coming weeks from Europe and Asia. Long delays and possible failures (“blank sailings”) are to be expected for all routings.
Lamprecht Pharma Logistics Ltd. continues to monitor the situation and provides regular updates at this point.

Trade Agreement Switzerland-United Kingdom - IMPORTANT: Changed rules of origin
After the one-year transition period, the United Kingdom left the EU internal market and the EU customs union. Furthermore, the international agreements of the EU no longer apply to the United Kingdom. They have been replaced by a new agreement. At the same time, the free trade agreement between Switzerland and the United Kingdom has been in force since January 1, 2021.
Unfortunately, these two agreements are not fully compatible. For exports to the United Kingdom, Swiss exporters must observe the following points when claiming preferential origin since January 1, 2021.learn more Close
- Primary materials from the EU are considered to be third countries in the manufacture of goods in Switzerland, even if they were previously imported duty-free. For exports to the United Kingdom, these may no longer be considered as originating goods when calculating the origin. We therefore advise Swiss exporters of goods to the United Kingdom to check their preference calculation.
- If Swiss exporters purchase goods from the EU with preferential treatment and send them on to the United Kingdom, no EUR 1 movement certificates / declarations of origin may be issued. Customs duties must be paid by the importer when importing into the UK.
Further information can be found on the webpage of the Federal Customs Administration.
