Congestion has been one ramification of the COVID outbreak we reported on yesterday.

In an effort to improve the traffic situation in the surrounding areas of the port of Yantian, Yantian International Container Terminals (YICT) has decided the following:

  • Between 12 AM (midnight) on May 28th and 11:59 PM on May 30th, export-loaded containers will not be accepted; import and empty container pick-up will operate as normal.
  • Starting at 12 AM (midnight) on May 31st, full export loads can be accepted, but only for vessels with ETD within 3 days.

Shapiro will continue to monitor the situation and provide status updates as they become available.
