With widespread congestion across logistics chains, Chinese New Year and the approaching traditional peak season add further stress to ports around the world, many of which already have vessel delays. The port of Yantian is also facing huge pressure with fewer vessels calling and cargo volume surging during this period, said Yantian International Container Terminal.
The port has taken several measures to ease the traffic pressure around the terminal and will resume the ETB-7 days service for the export laden containers starting from 29 January.
The laden gate-in container quota of the port will maintain at 12,000 containers daily.
A week earlier, Yantian port shortened its receiving window for export containers to four days as the terminal yard’s operation is close to full capacity.
