Chennai Port Congestion

October 06, 2011

Please note that due to a significant increase in demand, the Port of Chennai, located in South-East India, is currently experiencing difficulties evacuating/exporting containers in a timely fashion. This situation is expected to continue for the next several weeks.

Consequently, shipments arriving at the Chennai Port are expected to incur considerable delays as well as additional port storage, demurrage, and various other charges. In the meantime, port authorities and shipping lines have begun to divert shipments elsewhere in an attempt to help alleviate the current situation.

Rest assured that your Arpin service team will do everything possible to minimize delays and manage the expectations of the relocating families to the best of their ability. We will continue to update you as the situation warrants.
