Yantian Port resumed its export business on Monday. Although some routes have been cancelled, there are still about 40 container ships waiting for berths at Yantian Port, and there is a backlog of 20,000 containers. The backlog of so many containers and inefficient operations means at least another week of delay. According to the "Securities Times" report, nearly 90% of Shenzhen's exports to the United States and Europe originate from Yantian, and about 100 air routes are affected. This will also have a knock-on effect on exports from Europe and North America.

The partial closure of the port will not only increase the delivery time of the goods, but also cause the freight rate to rise. Asia to West America increased by 236% over the same period last year, and Asia to East America increased by 190%. This does not include premium rates and other fees paid by importers in the United States and worldwide. US exporters said that because of these additional costs, they paid more than $17,000 for each container. "The freight has increased by more than 300%, and there is no guarantee when the goods will arrive because the space is very limited." said an importer in the United States who did not want to be named.

Consignors should be prepared for "continued congestion at the terminal and delays in berthing of ships in the coming weeks." The traffic around the land side of the port is still very busy, and the container pickup is delayed by up to 10 hours. As the number of containers entering the port has decreased, the availability of containers has also been affected by delays. "We recommend that customers book in advance to secure the cabin. At present, it can be up to three to five weeks in advance."


A domestic cargo owner commented: “This will make the already bad condition of containers and spaces worse, not to mention the ridiculously high shipping prices. None of this will get better in the short term.”
