Affected by this, the hauling capacity of trailers will be tense, slowing the speed of collection of import and export cargo, which may result in delayed shipment or delivery of cargo. In this regard, our company has fully coordinated with the terminals, storage yards, trailers and other relevant parties to formulate countermeasures and solutions, so as to minimize the impact on customers.

In order to ensure smooth operation of your cargo, we advise you to arrange the shipment in advance.

The following instructions are for your reference,

EXPORT

1.      General Cargo: we suggest that the general cargo scheduled from August 24 to September 10, be prepared in advance for container pick-up and port collection as soon as possible to avoid the traffic-reduction.

You can visit our website (www.cosfrexm.com) for more specific information. For customers unable to stock up in advance, we offer feeder transit service to Xiamen from Weitou of Quanzhou, Dongshan of Zhangzhou, and Putian. Combining land container delivery. We also provide water transport service from Haixiang Container Terminal to Haitian Port or Haicang Port for customs clearance. For cargo that does need to be trucked during the BRICS Forum, please contact your trailer as soon as possible to make a plan for the night drag or rack.

2.       Reefers and awkward cargo: arrival in port ahead of schedule for reefers and awkward cargo may incur extra terminal charge.

3.      Dangerous goods: for dangerous goods, please adjust your shipment plan, due to the prohibition of handling operation of dangerous goods in the port area of Xiamen from August 27 to September 6.

4.      With cargo planned to be shipped from September 10 to September 17, you may consider about the small peak of shipment during the first week after the release of the ban. We suggest that you make the trailer and space arrangement in advance.
