China – Dense Fog in Shanghai, Ningbo and Qingdao Causes Vessel Delays
Dear Valued Customer,
As per our advisory sent on 13 April 2018, you would be aware that terminals in Shanghai, Ningbo and Qingdao have been affected by heavy winds and intense fog, causing disruptions to port operations and vessel services.
Port operations at Wai Gao Qiao and Yangshan are being delayed by at least 3 days and 1.5 days respectively, with delayed opening hours for container yards. Some APL services have started calling the newly opened Yangshan Terminal 4, adding more options to our valued customers.
Current waiting time for vessel is estimated at 3 days. APL is working closely with the port authority to bring this down to 2 days.
Port operations are back to normal, but the current cargo backlog is expected to take 2 days to clear.
Please be assured that APL is working closely with the terminal operators and will keep you apprised of any update or development.
For assistance, please contact your local APL Customer Service Representative.
We thank you for your business and continued support
