Taicang Port blockaded in dispute over Nan Tsing containers
The disputes between shippers and Taicang Port have intensified, as a number of shippers still haven’t reached agreement with the port to release the cargo in the detained containers of defunct Nan Tsing Container Lines. A number of furious shippers protested at Taicang Port’s Zhenghe Xinggang Container Terminals this morning. They also blocked the main entrance of the terminal with container trucks. Taicang Port detained around 140 Nan Tsing containers following the company’s decision to suspend operations. It asked shippers to pay RMB15,000 to RMB20,000 ($2,300 to $3,100) per container to release the cargo in the beginning. Later the port lowered the price to RMB5,000 ($785) per container, however, the shippers are requesting the port release the cargo without additional charges. When contacted by Splash, a spokesperson from Zhenghe Xinggang Container Terminals said the company is still negotiating with the shippers and doing its best to work out a solution for both parties. http://splash247.com/taicang-port-blockaded-in-dispute-over-nan-tsing-containers/Upload News
