Tianjin, China Explosion

As you may be aware, there was a massive explosion of dangerous goods stored in a warehouse near the Tianjin Port in China on August 12, 2015.  Although the Port is gradually resuming normal operation, there are a significant number of terminals in South China introducing additional restrictions on handling dangerous cargo and/or suspending the handling of dangerous cargo.  

As a result, dangerous goods may experience delays or suspension of service into this region, given the situation and the uncertainties that may arise during the recovery period. Additionally, containerized service into and out of Tianjin may be rerouted to different ports during the next few months. As we become aware of these changes, we will discuss them with the affected customers.

Should you need further clarification, please contact your local office or call us at our corporate office (888) 488-4888.

Our hearts go out to those affected by this explosion – we wish you the best!
