Alliances’ product restructuring and increased throughput volume are creating high congestion at the Port of Shanghai, according to an announcement issued by Shanghai International Port Group.

As informed, the Port of Shanghai is undertaking actions to return port operations to normal.

In addition to the restructuring of alliances, inclement weather in China has also caused congestion at several terminals in Shanghai, GAC told World Maritime News.

“The port authorities have announced some adjustments to the operations at the terminals, but no definite timeline has been offered on the restoration of normal operations,” GAC said.

Consequently, delays of up to ten days can be expected for ships waiting to load and unload at these terminals, according to GAC.
