Fog Delays China Ports
Recent fog and high winds have resulted in disruption to port operations at the Chinese ports of Shanghai, Ningbo and Qingdao. While operations are back to normal, a backlog has been caused by the adverse weather and is expected to continue for a few more days.
The latest information on the ports has been provided by our UniOcean Lines partners in the region:
Port operations at Wai Gao Qiao and Yangshan are being delayed by at least 3 days and 1.5 days respectively, with delayed opening hours for container yards. Some services have started calling at the newly opened Yangshan Terminal 4 to assist with clearing the backlog.
Current waiting time for vessel is estimated at 3 days, the port authority are working hard to bring this down to 2 days as soon as possible.
Port operations are back to normal, but the current cargo backlog is expected to take 2 days to clear.
