Customer Advisory: Yantian Port Situation
The new container appointment system upgraded by Yantian International Container Terminal (YICT) has led to a delay in the turnaround time for the containers stuffing in cross-dock warehouses in Shenzhen city.
CFS operators and their truckers are impacted by the slow turnaround time due to reduced appointment slots available:
- Outbound productivity of laden return for CFS operators to YICT has been reduced from 3-4 containers per truck per day to only 1 container per truck per day
- Inventory at various CFS facilities has increased and inbound receiving efficiency has dropped below normal level
- Potential delays occur for CFS shipments due to YICT new truck appointment constraint
We expect the situation to last for a while since demand for transportation to all the ports has increased and the market capacity is limited. To overcome this situation, our account teams are reaching out to our customers to discuss alternative solutions for their CFS shipment.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your APL Logistics Account Manager or the local APL Logistics office.
