Delayed Connection ex Pusan, South Korea to Vladivostok, Russia
Heavy weather and severe port congestion has not improved yet. Vessel space remains tight at transshipment port Pusan, South Korea.
We are now trying utmost effort to negotiate with several vessel operators for options, with possible feeder space by end March. Continuous push is in place for more allocation in April to clear the backlog.
Currently, the average transshipment time around 3 – 4 weeks at Pusan. The situation is anticipated to resume normal after a few voyages from which the transshipment idling at Pusan may take weeks.
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.
