Network Update On Japan

Since the events of Friday 11th March, the situation in Tokyo has for the most part returned to normal; however aftershocks of varying strengths occur daily. All of Agility’s offices throughout Japan are functioning normally, and airfreight import and export activities at Narita and Haneda airports are back to normal – certain airlines are performing radiation inspections at Narita (LH, AY and LX) and certain airlines at destination airport (AA, DL, UA, CI and CX) for air exports. There have been no shipments showing any sign of radiation contamination.

All ports are operating normally, with the exception of Hachinohe, Sendai, Kashima, Onahama and Ofunato, all located in the north eastern region of Japan – these ports are closed and shipping lines are not accepting bookings for them. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLITT) has recently announced that it intends to commence radiation scanning at Tokyo, Yokohama and Kawasaki ports – the timing for this is as yet unconfirmed.
