Vessel Delay Notice

Congestion at ports around the world continue to create major delays to services into and out of Australia.  Auckland, Oakland, Los Angeles, Singapore, Hong Kong and the Shenzhen ports of Yantian and Shekou continue to have waiting times for berthing and processing and it is creating backlog of containers in those ports.  There is knock on effect to other ports that transit either side of the aforementioned areas. 
 

Carriers continue to omit ports to reduce the delays to a sailing with ports like Qingdao and Ningbo in Northern China, Wellington and Christchurch in New Zealand regularly omitted and it will obviously cause delays to and from those ports. 

In transit delays continue to occur and it is resulting in backlogs into terminals around the world awaiting the delayed sailings.  Unfortunately this is resulting in continued delays in loading containers and on arrivals of shipments into Australia.

Please see the below advice of omission, delays and blanking’s.  You will see that there is a lot of disruption and much of it is occurring in China services over the coming weeks/month that will create continued backlog through all ports and unfortunately will result in delays to shipping programmes.
