YANTIAN port will only receive export laden containers with vessel ETB-4 recently
We are now under the peak season before the Chinese New Year, YANTIAN keeps operating with full gear to ensure the terminal operation running smoothly. However due to there is no improvement of the overseas ports congestion, in the past 2 weeks, the vessels schedule delayed over 170 hours in average, with the vessel arrived on time ratio less than 20%, the number of the arrival of vessels (mainly on US and EU service) has dropped sharply by over 40%.
Under such circumstance, there are many laden boxes stuck inside the terminal and the yard density close to full scenario. To ensure the high efficiency of operation and ease the traffic pressure outside around the terminal, YANTIAN will take following measures for the export laden boxes gate-in:
1. Starting from 00:00 on January 21, 2022, YANTIAN will only receive export laden containers with vessel ETB-4 (Estimated Time of Berthing: within 4 days).
2. The laden gate-in quota still maintain at 12,000 as usual.
YANTIAN will continue to keep close communication and coordination with government, shipping carriers and relevant associations. Please stay tuned for latest information in our official WeChat account and website.
