Homepack Freight International:

Dear Customers and Partners, 

Recently, Pakistan has suffered nationwide flooding due to heavier than usual monsoon rains and melting glaciers. All staff members of FIDI Pakistan are safe. However, the floods have caused severe landslides, damage to transport infrastructure, and disruption to internet connections nationwide. In addition to domestic transportation in Pakistan, the floods have also impeded the transit movement between Pakistan and Afghanistan, Iran and the neighboring countries causing minimum 15 – 20 days of delays at present. Due to the transport taken over by NGO’S for flood relief operation, there are considerable delays effecting the normal operations, logistics.

Considering this disruption, please book all shipments to and from Pakistan and transit shipments to Afghanistan at least 15-20 days in advance, as domestic haulage, ports and airport infrastructure have been severely affected. Air transportation is also affected due to bad weather

Airlines / Vessels from different countries carrying FOODAID AND RELIEF GOODS is causing congestion, and space issues at ports and airports too!

We sincerely hope and pray that the situation to normalize soon.
