Container ship navigates foggy conditions

Extreme Weather in Asia Affecting Vessel Transit Times

Karolina Mazur Featured, News, Uncategorized

Bad weather at multiple ports across Asia has been disrupting departure schedules and resulting in congestion, with the worst-affected terminal, Shanghai East Container Terminal, causing delays of up to seven days.

In addition to fog affecting major Chinese ports, including Ningbo and Qingdao, torrential rain has caused problems at Port Klang, Malaysia, and in Singapore.

Carriers have issued advisories about these delays, which add to challenges to efficiency resulting from the need to divert vessels around southern Africa due to concerns about piracy in the Red Sea.
