Peak season continues to impact ports in the Philippines through the end of the year.  Yard utilization in Manila is estimated between 92%-95%.  Containers for both import and export are seeing fees in both demurrage and trucking fees as a result of the congestion.

Below please find terminal updates:

Manila North
6 vessels waiting at the anchor
Estimated On window vessel delay – 3 to 4 days
Estimated Off window vessel delay – 5 to 6 days

Manila South
13 vessels waiting at the anchor
Estimated On window vessel delay – 3 to 4 days
Estimated Off window vessel delay – 5 to 6 days

Prepare for higher trucking rates in and out of the port to increase by 30% and for empties to be diverted up to 100 miles away. Contact your GLOBAL logistics professional to plan transportation to minimize these impacts.
