Port of Yantian Closure

Posted on May 26


The Port of Yantian stopped taking in loaded containers as berth congestion deteriorates and as local health authorities tighten their anti-virus measures within the port facilities.

The restriction will be implemented from May 25th (22:00 local time) to May 27th ( 23:59 local time). The restriction will only be partly lifted for export boxes with expected vessel arrival at the port within the next four days. Pickups of import or empty containers is allowed during this period.

Yantian’s port congestion is expected to persist for some time and further port closures might have to be expected.

Please contact your V. Alexander Account Team to discuss the impact this port closure might have on your cargo.
