Yantian Port recently stated that due to the crowded space of storage yards, the efficiency of terminal operations has been seriously affected. In order to avoid port congestion, business adjustments have been made.
Specifically, during the period from 00:00 on May 28th to 23:59 on May 30th, Yantian Port will not accept export full containers into the gate; during this period, import full containers and empty containers will be in normal operations.
From 00:00 on May 31st, the acceptance of full containers will resume, and only ETA-3 days (that is, three days before the estimated ship arrival date) will be accepted for export full containers. This measure will be implemented from May 31 to June 6.
In response to this change in Yantian Port, Maersk, Hapag-Lloyd and ONE made corresponding business adjustments.
The company stated that all operations in the western port area of Yantian Port will be suspended until further notice. The eastern port area of Yantian Port is still operating normally, but due to the low efficiency of terminal operations, Maersk expects ship delays in the next week to reach 5 days. After Yantian Port resumes receiving full containers on May 31, congestion will continue.
At the same time, due to the serious impact of ship delays in Yantian Port, the 40-foot standard container and the 40-foot tall container are in shoratge. Maersk recommends that customers pick up their containers at Chiwan Port, or use 20-foot standard containers instead.In addition, given that the truck service at Yantian Port is affected by terminal congestion, Maersk estimates that the empty container pickup time will be delayed by at least 8 hours. It will provide inland transportation solutions for customers who need to pick up boxes at Chiwan Port.
In view of this, in order to ensure the punctual rate of the sailing schedule, some Maersk ships will cancel the call at Yantian Port and an alternative plan will be provided.
The specific adjustments are as follows:
