Containershipping understand only affected by delays resulting from port closure, some working in terminals has recommenced but no receiving and delivery mainly due to air pollution and smoke.

Here some additional informations regarding the disaster of Tianjin:

Only a very poor information has been published by the Tianjin Port Company:

German news magazine SPIEGEL ONLINE has published the following photos from the disaster scene:

No reports of damage to ships, but I would be amazed if there has not been at least superficial blast damage in the nearer harbour basins.
