Maersk Line, the world's biggest container shipping line, will resume its cargo service to Libya on September 8 in its first shipment since February, a company's spokesman has stated.

Maersk Line, a unit of Danish shipping and oil group A.P. Moller-Maersk, stated it would only call at the eastern Libyan port of Benghazi.

"Currently only acceptance into Benghazi has been agreed. However, we follow developments closely and will evaluate feasibility of opening up acceptance into the remaining Libyan ports with the safety of our local staff and vessel crew in mind as well as the likelihood of operating the ports in question," said group press officer Michael Christian Storgaard.
