Thailand: Threat of flooding affects shipments of rice cargo

Friday, 28 October 2011 | 10:07

Spica services Bangkok has advised that due to the ongoing threat of flooding in Thailand, shipments to and from the kingdom have been affected.The export

of rice cargo is expected to be severely affected. In addition to the Authorities limiting vessel traffic in the Chao Praya River, to ease wash damage to properties adjacent the river, the majority of barges used to load rice cargoes have been unable to load cargoes as Ayutthaya Province, the origin of the cargo, has been severely flooded. Members expecting to load rice cargoes from Thailand should check cargo availability, to avoid delays.
In addition, due to flooding in the numerous Container Terminals and ICD's, their ability to accept more laden containers is also in doubt. Many ICD's have already resorted to stowing laden containers above empties, to avoid cargo damage and diverting containers to Laem Chabang, which remains unaffected currently.
