Yesterday’s 7.4 earthquake which struck northeast Taiwan has damaged some berths at Hualien port.

The quake, the most powerful to hit the island for 25 years, resulted in several wharfs bulging at Hualien, according to Wilhelmsen Port Services.

The damaged berths are used for sand, bulk cargo discharging, and cruise operations.

One pier (pictured) collapsed by about 50 cm, while authorities are checking for a suspected rupture of an oil pipeline. An entrance road to the port was also damaged.

As a result, port operations are currently suspended, and vessels are only permitted to depart, not enter.

Apart from Hualien, no damage has been reported at other ports across Taiwan.

At least nine people were killed and more than 1,000 injured when the quake hit 18km south of Hualien yesterday morning.

More than 90 people are still understood to be trapped in collapsed tunnels and roads along the coastline.

NEOLink cooperated with our order processing system. He did not replace it or force solutions. Logfret did it better than other companies on the market – it adapted its system to ours. Logfret didn’t come to us saying, “We have this solution, and you either use it or we won’t cooperate.

My suppliers have less or zero experience with international logistics. Thus, not able to create proper documentation which leads to tremendous delay. Thanks to Logfret who provide training to all suppliers and work with us to build up a consolidation hub to reduce transportation costs significantly.
