At APL, ensuring the health and safety of all our employees and partners are a priority. As such, we are allowing our employees in China to work from home until the situation improves.
In the meantime, APL is following up closely with all port authorities on their procedures for vessels calling China. So far, there has been no significant impact to vessel schedules.
As of now, other than Wuhan port, all other Chinese ports remain open. Rest assured that APL will fully comply with any regulatory requirements and policies aimed at curbing the spread of the Coronavirus. We will continue to keep you informed of any development in relation to port operations.
We thank you for your business and continued support.
