COVID cases continue to rise in Shenzhen, which is affecting the ports of Yantian, Shekou and Nansha.
Yantian International Container Terminal (YICT)
Yard density remains elevated with disinfection and quarantine measures being implemented by local authorities. It is expected that there will be terminal congestion and vessel delays upwards of 14 days over the coming week.
In the eastern area of Yantian terminal, where mother vessels mainly berth, productivity is at about 30% of its normal level. Meanwhile, all operations in the western area of the terminal have been suspended until further notice.
From Monday 31st May until Sunday 6th June, CY-open will be available only three days prior to vessel ETA, and only after the terminal confirms advance reservations by trucking companies for laden containers gate-in.
Import laden container pick-up operations are normal.
