Congestion at key Asian container ports is worsening, with berthing delays increasing at Chinese and South East Asian hubs, according to a top industry analyst.

“Although the total capacity waiting at Singapore has eased slightly from 450,000 teu a week ago to 380,000 teu, the strain has shifted to [Malaysia’s] Port Klang and Tanjung Pelepas,” said container shipping data provider Linerlytica.
