PORT LOUIS, MAURITIUS – Cargo Handling Corporation Ltd. (CHCL) longshoremen refused to handle container ship GH LEVANT at Port Louis, Mauritius, out of virus fear – the ship arrived from Shenzhen China with some 300 containers to be offloaded, and 400 to be loaded.
The GH LEVANT is a small, Marshall Islands-flagged vessel built-in 2005 with a capacity of 4132 TEU.
CHCL is the only container terminal at Port Louis. While the vessel’s crew of 21 have all been pronounced virus-free by local Health Authorities, workers remained unconvinced and refused to board the ship.
GH LEVANT berthed late Mar 9, she left Shenzhen on Feb 24.
