Asia Typhoon Advisory: Typhoon Hinnamnor forces the closure of Chinese and South Korean ports

Disruption to Asia supply chains as Typhoon Hinnamnor causes operations to cease at the ports of Shanghai, Ningbo, Busan and Kwangyang

The emergence of Typhoon Hinnamnor led to operations at the equipment yards and container terminals ceasing at 4pm on Sunday, 4th September, in addition to the majority of flights at Shanghai’s Pudong Airport seeing cancellations.

The typhoon is expected to cause a two-day delay in vessel departures from Shanghai and Ningbo ports, with operations likely to resume on Tuesday morning following the storm’s passing.

However, the storm is expected to reach Busan in South Korea tomorrow morning (Tuesday, 6th) which could lead to further operational suspensions and flight cancellations.
