China Port Rule Affects 350,000-Ton Bulk Ships, Shipowners Say

China’s tightened rules on ports handling large ships applies to dry-bulk vessels larger than 350,000 tons and oil tankers bigger than 450,000 tons, the China Shipowners Association said in a notice posted on its Website yesterday. It didn’t say where it got the information from.
The ministry of transport this week issued a notice saying that ports needed its approval before they could handle larger vessels. Previously, ports and shipowners had generally dealt with such situations on a case-by-case basis.
