Default Hong Kong shipping delays possible due to port strike action.

We have been informed of some possible minor delays for shipments to/from/via Hong Kong due to industrial strike action.

Shipping lines are making contingency plans in case the dockworker strike at facilities operated by Hong Kong International Terminals at the world’s 3rd biggest container port is on-going.

Find out more about the potential impact on shipping and the details of the strikes http://bournesmoves.com/news/entryid...-strike-action

Default Re: Hong Kong shipping delays possible due to port strike action.

Update:

The Hong Kong port strike continues and is going into its 5th week, however, there are some new developments to report.

Port authority and Chinese billionaire, Li Ka-shing, is now hiring staff in place of some of the protesting workers to handle the backlog of containers/ships at the port facility. The impact of this effort has brought about additional protests from the dock workers. There is still no resolution to the workers' agreement.

This Hong Kong strike continues to delay shipments and is causing shipping lines to divert from the Hong Kong port into neighboring ports, such as Shenzhen's port facility in order to maintain schedules.

An additional Impact this strike is having on the industry is not only workers pay and unionization at the port of Hong Kong, but to the ship and vessel operations, feeder operations and vessel share agreements (VSA) between carriers.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep all clients who may be affected informed.

The 40 day Hong Kong port strike has ended. Resources have advised that the dockworkers received a 9.8% pay increase as a compromised settlement.
The container terminal has resumed to normal operations and is now working on restoring the port to its full capabilities.
