August 22, 2017

Severe weather conditions are anticipated in Hong Kong as Tropical Storm Hato approaches. The storm is expected to come within 100 km of the city on Wednesday morning, canceling flights and disrupting normal transportation services. As a consequence, we have been notified of several terminal closures:

The Shenzhen terminal closed on August 22 at 18:00

The Hong Kong terminal closed on August 22 at 19:00

Based on the expected storm track, transportation services will be impacted and may result in additional port storage and demurrage charges for import and export containers.
