USA Port Arrival Procedures Announced
The US Coast Guard announced new US port arrival procedures effective immediately for vessels that have called Chinese ports (excluding Hong Kong and Macau). The incoming vessel must report to the US Coast Guard Captain of the Port on the crew’s health. And, as long as there are no sick crew members on board, vessels will be allowed to berth normally.
Our Customer Service teams are working on an extended on-duty plan together with our account teams and customers to mitigate any potential impact to our customers’ cargo plans.
Please contact your Hamburg Süd representative with any questions that you may have.
