Hong Kong Urged to Act on Port Congestion 13-Mar-2014

 

Hong Kong port operators urged the government to press harder on consolidating about 70 hectares of land next to its terminals to eliminate congestion and raise their capacity as a round of alliances in shipping lines will further stretch the limits of the already crowded port.


Port operators were coming under increasing pressure to become more efficient as alliances of shipping companies have expanded, said Jessie Chung Wai-yin, the chairman of the Hong Kong Container Terminal Operators Association, reported South China Morning Post.

"If we don't react quickly enough, the liners will leave for other ports," she said.

Congestions and delays at Hong Kong port are common as it lacks enough land to expand its operations. Barges, which carry containers to and from the Pearl River Delta as a feed for ocean-going ships, are facing two days of delay on average. The delay increases to an average of four days before the Lunar New Year and the National Day holidays.
