Yantian port’s Covid crisis deteriorates

The outbreak of Covid-19 seems to continue at the Port of Yantian in China with the shipping lines taking additional actions to face the situation and Maersk saying that due to further measures being implemented, increased congestion and vessel delays upwards of 14 days are expected in the port.

Hapag Lloyd will be making the following omissions, on the noted Transpacific services, in order to minimise vessel idle time and port congestion.

The German carrier said that the situation remains fluid and subject to change, while it will keep monitoring the port condition and will announce further omissions if it is needed.

"The situation continues to deteriorate as more positive Covid-19 cases have been confirmed in Shenzhen where Yantian port and Shekou port are located and in Guangzhou where Nansha port is located," pointed out Maersk in its latest update on 4 June.

The Danish shipping line added that Yantian International Container Terminal (YICT) yard density remains elevated with disinfection and quarantine measures being continuously implemented by local authorities to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

"We expect continued terminal congestion and vessel delays upwards of 14 days in the coming week," noted the company.

Due to the aforementioned disruptions, Maersk has announced that several vessels will be omitting the Port of Yantian and Shekou "in order to protect schedule reliability."
