Shenzhen's Yantian International Container Terminal has announced that due to the increasingly serious shipping delays, the yard of Yantian Port has a very high storage density that seriously affects the operation efficiency of the wharf and also leads to traffic congestion around the terminal.
In an emergency effort to relieve congestion, Yantian has decided to adopt the following measures:
In addition to the congestion at Yantian Port, there have also been 5 confirmed COVID-19 cases. Areas near the port, along with those who have come in contact with the patients, have been placed into quarantine.
The port is also understaffed due to the COVID-19 testing among staff every day for seven consecutive days.
The delays at the port have also caused truckers to experience longer wait times - around 10 hours - to pick up or return containers.
