Heavy fog in North China and South Korea causes service disruptions

Spring has come which brings the seasonal humid weather and dense fog to the coast of North China and South Korea.

Terminals in Shanghai, Ningbo and Qingdao have been affected by heavy winds and dense fog since the beginning of May. Based on weather forecast, Dalian is expected to have low visibility. The port of Busan in South Korea has also been covered by dense fog recently.

Due to the bad weather conditions, ports have been closing from time to time; as a consequence, vessel berthing and operations are disrupted.

Some vessels may possibly omit the affected ports, causing delays for those shipments to be loaded on board.

If you have any concerns about your shipment, please feel free to get in touch with your DACHSER representative to check the status.
