Dense fog has hampered vessel and port operations for Shanghai and Ningbo ports during the past three weeks, resulting in lengthy vessel delays, significant port congestion, outbound vessels unable to depart, and inbound vessels unable to dock. Operations have been further impacted by the implementation of Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration traffic control measures on the Yangtze River waterway. Average vessel delays of three to four days, up to a week, have been experienced.
The MIQ Logistics Shanghai office has confirmed that Yangshan and Waigaoqiao terminals have resumed operations and are working to return to normal. A recent advisory from American President Lines (APL) states that “the Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration has advised it may take two to three weeks for operations to return to normal in Shanghai.”
