Typhoon Impacts Shanghai Logistics

 

 

The Port of Shanghai and its international airports have been temporary closed pending the arrival of Typhoon Chanthu, which is due to make landfall tonight (Monday 13th September).

The container port, which is the largest in the world, has suspended most container operations, as it prepares for the arrival of the tropical storm. Chanthu started raining on the city on Sunday after already impacting the southern Chinese coast, Taiwan and the Philippines.

China’s Maritime Safety Administration also issued warnings last week for  Xiamen and Ningbo Ports, and asked ships to adjust plans with a view to leaving typhoon-affected waters.

All flights through Shanghai’s Pudong airport have been cancelled  since 11am local time today (4am UK and Irish time).

The tropical storm is yet another contributor to the ongoing delays for supply chains from China. Should you be concerned about current shipments then please contact a member of the team.

 

As ever, Atlantic Pacific continue to work diligently to mitigate supply chain disruption during these extremely difficult times. Should you require further information on the above, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
