SINGAPORE - The world's largest container firm suspended operations at several Iranian ports on Thursday, potentially disrupting critical food shipments as it complies with tightening US sanctions.

Maersk line, a unit of A.P. Moller-Maersk, manages several refrigerated ships and container vessels that transport food to the country, including wheat, rice and bananas from Asia.

Shipments could be delayed for weeks as Maersk adjusts its operations in the Middle East, analysts said.
