Damco's Lebanon team gets operations running 24 hours after Beirut Port blast

DAMCO’s Beirut-based team, working with the forwarder’s Business Resilience (BR) Program, had operations in Lebanon back up and running within 24 hours of this month’s devastating blast at the Port of Beirut.

Staff at the freight forwarder’s headquarters in The Hague were able to rapidly assess the safety and welfare of the Lebanon team thanks to communication channels put in place as part of the Program.

Supported by the global DAMCO team working with the BR Program, the Beirut team relocated all office functions to its warehouse facility in Dekwaneh, a suburb of the city, keeping supply chains moving.
