Pasir Gudang, Malaysia – situation is improving now and manageable.

Bangkok, Thailand – Situation is still extremely critical even approaching various feeder operators. Space is seriously short and feeder operators are unable to allocate and confirm any buffer until mid of June. Transshipment idling at Port Klang may take more than 4 weeks, especially for big lot shipments.
Laem Chabang, Thailand – Space and connection is manageable by now.

Currently, we are still negotiating with various feeder / vessel operators for any possibilities of earliest connection to minimize the negative impact. However, the situation is anticipated to be worst in June and the transshipment connection time may still take more than 2 weeks at average.
We deeply apologize for this force majeure situation beyond carrier’s control. Looking forward to your kind understanding and patience. We are monitoring the situation and will keep you informed for any further update.
