Back-up plan for strike-crippled Port of Hong Kong

As a strike by dockworkers that has battered operations at the Port of Hong Kong enters its fourth week, the Hong Kong Shippers’ Council has devised a back-up plan to continue to move goods.

According to Carbon Positive, the Council has negotiated with the Port of Guangdong on mainland China to divert Hong Kong cargo there, as well as receive expedited clearance of diverted cargo by Guangdong customs officials.  The Council has been working in tandem with the Federation of Hong Kong Industries for an alternative course of action to avoid even more shipping delays in advance of next month’s peak season.

The Port of Hong Kong is one of the world’s busiest.
