China’s reefer cargo crisis worsens as carriers plan to abandon boxes
Japanese carrier ONE has joined several of its liner peers in imposing a congestion surcharge on reefer containers destined for major Chinese ports.
Moreover, some carriers are preparing to declare force majeure and leave refrigerated containers at alternative ports.
With the coronavirus outbreak showing no signs of abating in China and still severely restricting landside operations at the ports of Shanghai, Ningbo and Xingang, reefer plug-in points are in extremely short supply, obliging carriers to discharge temperature-controlled boxes at other ports.Source: The Load Star
