Yantian Terminal Reduces Acceptance of Dangerous Goods Containers

Over the past months Yantian Terminal has adjusted the Dangerous Goods (DG) storage capacity within in its terminal.  The reduction has been gradual and while the terminal has not released an official advice it is understood it relates to congestion at the terminal and container build up forcing it to strictly manage its increased container storage in the lead up to vessel arrival and departure.

As there has been no official notice by the terminal operators shipping lines calling Yantian have been caught with backlog of existing DG containers and have moved to cut their acceptance of DG containers.

ZIM Lines has announced without notice that it will temporarily suspend DG containers, this includes existing bookings.

Shekou Terminal is continuing to receive DG however that may also change at short notice.  Our customer service teams will discuss with you any impact on your shipments.
