Rades Closed to Container Ships for Two Days

At a meeting held yesterday (27 November 2019) between the Rades port authorities and local stakeholders, it was decided that the port would be closed to all container traffic from for two days from Saturday, 30 November to Sunday, 1 December 2019.


The closure is to enable finalisation of the TOP/SMART GATE GO systems.  These smart systems, combined with investments in port infrastructure, aim to accelerate container handling and eliminate the need for vessels to wait at anchorage.


All container vessels must leave the port by Friday night (29 November 2019) at the latest.
