Shenzhen’s Yantian Port, which was heavily disrupted by the recent Covid-19 outbreak, should be back to normal by the end of the month, officials say. At present, daily throughput is nearly 24,000 TEUs, around 70% of the level prior to the outbreak, which resulted in the lockdown of the area, home to one of the world’s biggest container ports.
“The operation of the port terminal is steadily improving, the reservation system is operating effectively, traffic in the port area and its surroundings is smooth, and all sectors of society have responded well,” Chen Biao, secretary of the board of Yantian Port Group, told reporters. Lin Lixin, deputy general manager of South China COSCO Shipping Container Lines Co., Ltd., told reporters that the company is confident that Yantian will resume work and production steadily. “The company has already made plans to re-berth in Yantian Port Area, and I believe that the liner routes in Yantian Port Area will soon return to normal conditions.,” Lin said.
