Container port congestion in China is rapidly expanding, as new liner-alliance schedules, added to poor weather, cause disruption to container shipping operations.
As previously reported, Shanghai's Yangshan terminals are experiencing lengthy delays and vessel queues. The most congested facilities at Shanghai are now suffering from berthing delays of at least two days, which is having a serious impact on feeder service schedules.
Terminals in Qingdao and Ningbo are also now facing congestion and high yard density, and it is expected that delays at these Chinese ports could continue for a prolonged period.
We will continue to monitor this situation closely and advise accordingly.
