As of 29 September, according to data from the UN Verification Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM), ten vessels carrying cargos of fuel were awaiting to berth at Hodeidah port.

These vessels were carrying a total estimated volume of over 212,000 Metric Tonnes of fuel – the equivalent of approximately a month’s average fuel imports through Hodeidah port. We cannot estimate the value of this fuel as the overall value depends on the individual commercial arrangements made in each case.

As of 29 September, no issues were reported by UNVIM on vessels carrying food, medical supplies and other cargo.
