It was announced on the 11th August that a positive case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Ningbo Meishan Island International Terminal (MSICT). The positive case has resulted in suspension to all operations until further notice whilst the terminal undergoes disinfection and quarantine measures are implemented by local authorities to prevent the spreading of COVID-19.
Ningbo Port has multiple terminals with MSICT being the only one confirmed affected at this time, MSICT accounts for approx. 25% of container cargo handled through the port of Ningbo.
The sailing schedules are already disrupted due to the ongoing port congestion from the typhoon that hit Shanghai and Ningbo in late July which led to the temporary closure of both ports. The situation is now expected to worsen.
Please note the following information:
It is not foreseeable how long the port closure will continue.
We will as always, take all necessary measures to ensure your cargo moves as efficiently as possible.
