In sanctions imposed on Muammar Gaddafi’s government the European Union agreed to freeze six Libyan ports.
EU officials say they will make it illegal for European-operated ships to do business with the port authorities. A wide ranging asset freeze and travel ban has also already been imposed from the EU.
This can cause delays for any shipments to the following ports: Tripoli, Zuara, Zawiyah, Al-Khoms, Ras Lanuf and Brega.
