Berth Congestion Worsening at Dili, Timor Leste

first_imgzoom Berthing delays at Dili, Timor Leste have deteriorated significantly and now stand at up to 10 days, Australian shipping firm ANL says.As disclosed, quay side congestion and adhoc public holiday announcements by the Timor Leste Government have contributed to the lengthening of delays experienced by vessel operators calling Timor Leste.“As per reports from our Dili office a regular liner call vessel arrived on 9th February, and has returned to Singapore without discharging in order to avoid a 10 day berthing delay,” APL said.ANL added that it was applying full pressure to relevant government agencies in an effort to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.In addition, ANL representatives are coordinating with Customs, Dili Port Authority, stevedores, importers and trucking companies for the port to be opened for extended hours in an effort to clear a back log of cargo remaining on the wharf.“Presently the ANL Darwin Trader is at anchorage and due to the congestion of vessels and current back log of containers to be cleared from the wharf is not expected at this time to berth on 24/02. Both the ANL Darwin Trader and ANL Dili Trader are operating at full speed in an effort to mitigate the congestion delays and disruption of service to our clients,” the company went on to say.As a result of the delays both import and export connections in Singapore as well as arrivals into Darwin and Dili remain affected.last_img
