Maersk, the shipping giant, still got vessels calling at Russian ports to deliver containers booked before the Russia-Ukraine war began and to pick up around 50,000 containers stranded in Russia, Chief Executive Soren Skou said.
Average vessel waiting times for berth and labour have improved significantly at the San Pedro Bay ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach in the past few weeks, halving the number of queueing ships to below 50.
The International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) said late on Friday it was withdrawing Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RMRS)' membership with immediate effect, which it said was "no longer tenable", citing UK sanctions on Russia where IACS is domiciled.
Yantian International Container Terminal announced that it maintained normal operation since the escalation of local Covid-19 prevention and controls and is making great efforts to keep the supply chain running smoothly in the Great Bay area, as well as the materials supply supporting Hong Kong.
All Ukrainian ports have been closed since the conflict started with ships at berth unable to leave. Embassies and consulates have been working around the clock to get affected crew out of the country.
The newly launched data platform project of the port of Long Beach is getting traction on the US west coast after the ports of Oakland and the Seattle-Tacoma Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) signalled support for the concept.
