Chinese ports reopen as weakening typhoon moves toward Japan

Posted on: 15 Sep 2021

Terminals at the ports of Shanghai and Ningbo have started to resume operations as the impact of typhoon Chanthu subsides.

China’s National Meteorological Centre moved the weather system down a rung of the alert level to yellow, the third-most serious, after it turned eastwards before making landfall in China’s Zhejiang province.

Hovering over the sea off Shanghai, it is expected to head northeast and approach the coasts of northern Japan via the Korea Strait.

Shanghai International Port Group said in a customer advisory that it plans to restore the pickups and deliveries of laden containers at its terminals from September 14.

The recovery of services for empty containers is pending further notice.

Notifications about similar plans were also issued by major container terminals in Ningbo, including the Meishan Container Terminal and Daxie China Merchants International Terminal.

These facilities were forced to close over the past two days in anticipation of extraordinary weather conditions.
