Ningbo’s Meishan Island International Container Terminal (MSICT) has now formally resumed full operations as of 25th August. This follows its recent closure due to the detection of COVID-19 among staff.
Local officials have confirmed that no other positive cases have been detected following three rounds of swab testing.
MSICT had previously resumed some operations, such as the gate-in of laden containers, loading vessels and berth and receiving new containership arrivals.
Meishan terminal accounts for around 20% of Ningbo’s total container throughput, so it is therefore expected that there will be a significant backlog to clear.
