Nansha port closed for fireworks - effective March 18, 2008

Nansha port will cease handling fireworks effective immediately. Decision was made by Guangdong government to end the operation and transportation of fireworks from Guangdong province. As a result, there are only 2 ports that will handle fireworks : Beihai and Shanghai.

It is known that Shanghai will stop handling fireworks containers from July 1st 2008 to 30th September 2008 due to the Olympics. It has not been officially announced, but we have been informed informally. It is not known if Beihai will follow suit. Either way, if transportation is limited, production will stop due to limited warehouse storage.
