Due to the continued lockdown and factory closure orders in Vietnam, the container yard capacity at Tan Cang Cat Lai Container Terminal (TCCL) in Ho Chi Ming City has reached capacity. Local port authority said during a recent statement that containers have accumulated at port because many factories within the region have reduced or been asked to suspend their production. As a result, this has negatively affected the receipt and release of vessels at port.
In view of things , TCCL has announced the subsequent mitigating measures to ease the port’s congestion and to clear container backlog:
• The terminal will temporarily stop receiving import containers of companies whose production has been halted.
• From August 1st to 16th, the terminal will stop taking in refrigerated cargo.
• From August 5th until further notice, the terminal will temporarily suspend the acceptance of oversized and “Out Of Gauge” cargo that occupy ample space at container yards.
Our local office reported that there’s no impact to exported goods at the instant , but the general port productivity has significantly lowered thanks to labor shortage.
Currently, our local teams in Ho Chi Minh City are performing their duties remotely while our Hanoi Office is open at 50% capacity with the reminder performing from home as a precaution. Century will gladly work with you to supply warehouse storage locally, just in case your vendors can deliver but carriers are unable to simply accept your cargo at the instant .
