Port – Yang Ming update – Ain Snan Express has only been able to berth Southampton earlier this morning after waiting outside for around 7 days. This has inevitably significantly delayed evacuation of surplus empty equipment. Despite all efforts, at present all storage in the Southampton area is full and unable to accept any further equipment currently. This means until Ain Snan Express commences loading  our empties we regret are unable to accept further empty 20’  dry containers or 40’ high  cubes in Southampton. We believe the situation will begin to improve overnight Thursday and by next Monday space will no longer be a problem . At present, no other issues to report. Further operational information can be found here.
