Fog Delays China Ports

May 5, 2018 | News

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.
