CONTAINER LINE SCHEDULES TAKE ANOTHER HIT AS PORT CONGESTION IN CHINA SPREADS

2021-07-18

Yantian International Container Terminal (YICT) has extended its export suspension until Monday, as port congestion worsens throughout China. The Shenzhen gateway was due to resume accepting export containers today, following a two-day suspension starting Tuesday evening. However, according to an update from Maersk, it was extended yesterday for a further 72 hours, with container gate-in times reduced from four to three days of a vessel’s estimated time of arrival (ETA), from 31 May until 6 June. The Alliance already has announced around nine blank sailings out of 35 departures in June.
