NOTICE TO CUSTOMER
Port of Yantian Closure
26 May 2021
Dear Valued Customer,
The Port of Yantian stopped taking in loaded containers as berth congestion deteriorates and as local health authorities tighten their anti- virus measures within the port facilities.
The restriction will be implemented from 2200 hrs local time on May 25 to 2359 hrs on May 27. The restriction will only be partly lifted for export boxes with expected vessel arrival at the port within the next four days.
Pickups of import or empty containers is allowed during this period.
We expect the Yantian port congestion to persist for some time and are working on contingency plans and service recovery.

Re: YICT (Yantian International Container Terminal) – Outbound Cargo Receiving Arrangement
Dear Valued customers,
This is to share that upon YICT terminal’s information: Due to increasingly serious update in shipping schedules, the storage yard in Yantian Port has a very high density, which seriously affects the efficiency of terminal operations and also causes traffic congestion around the port area. In order to improve the above problems, Yantian International decided to:
- During the period from 22:00 on 25th May to 23:59 on 27th May, export heavy containers will not be accepted into the gate; during this period, import heavy containers and empty containers will maintain normal operation. 5 月 25 日 22:00 至 5 月 27 日 23:59 期间，不接收出口重柜入闸；在此期间，提进口重柜及空柜维持正常操作。
- From 00:00 on 28th May, the acceptance of heavy containers will resume, and only ETA-4 (that is, the export heavy containers within four days before the expected arrival date of the ship) will be accepted. This measure will be implemented from 28th May to 3rd June. 5 月 28 日 00:00 时起, 恢复接收重柜，只接收 ETA-4（即船舶预计到港日期前四天内）的出口重柜，此措 施实施时间为 5 月 28 日至 6 月 3 日。
Please well check the latest arrival date via below link before gate in, or you could check with terminal on the acceptance date upon the necessity.
