The BOC Blast 193 – Container Shortages in Thailand

Container Shortages in Thailand

Please be aware of serious container shortages in Thailand, especially in the Laem Chabang area, caused mainly by the congestion in the terminal which has led to the port authority controlling empty repositions into Laem Chabang.

There is no official notice from carriers for this situation, and carriers are not able to give us a time line for when the situation will be improved. But they encourage customers to pick up containers at Bangkok and Lat Krabang, when possible, where the waiting time will be much less (waiting time can still be 4-6 hours).

It is recommended to place bookings as early as possible to give all parties more time to secure space and equipment locally.
