Port closures on Yangtze river

Please be advised that due to covid-19 pandemic developments in the Jiangsu province in China, the ports of Taicang, Nantong, Changshu, Yizheng and Yangzhou in the Yangtze river have suspended berthing foreign vessels.
 
So far it is not clear when operations will be resumed.

So far other Yangtze river ports remain operational for foreign vessels but may be affected during the week. Currently the government has not released a formal announcement for the port closures. The decision comes from the respective ports and/or terminals in order to support government’s new control policy for the outbreak in that area.
