Dalian, China – Import Reefer Update

Please be informed that reefer shipments into Dalian, China will require a longer time for completion of COVID-19 inspection and cargo clearance process. This has resulted in a delay in operations for the reefers in Dalian port.

Due to the aforementioned, all related inbound operations as well as container pickup activities have been impacted with the severe delay. Despite every effort, it was not possible to timely discharge all reefer containers in Dalian. Subsequently, shipments are to be diverted to alternative ports such as Qingdao, Tianjin, other China Ports or hold at Busan. We anticipate that this situation, which is beyond Hapag-Lloyd’s control will continue for the upcoming weeks.

Given the above situation, we can offer the following options related to your Frozen Reefer cargo (Frozen Meats, Frozen Fishery):

(1) Accept delivery at current port of discharge if situation allows Or,
(2) Divert your reefer containers to another port / destination Or,
(3) In case we don’t receive any instruction from you, Hapag-Lloyd is reserved the right to take necessary arrangement.


Please note that for all options, all additional costs, risks and liabilities related to the storage or movement of the cargo after discharge will be for the account of the cargo owner. We kindly ask for you to provide us with written confirmation of your preferred choice for taking delivery of the cargo at your earliest convenience in order for us to initiate the necessary arrangements. We regret the inconvenience that these circumstances may cause and the terms of this notice shall be read in conjunction with and without prejudice to Hapag-Lloyd’s Bill of Lading / Sea Waybill terms and conditions and the Hapag-Lloyd tariff applicable thereto.
