Tanker ports update - Japan

This ports update bulletin is revised as and when new information on wet bulk terminals is received.  Whilst the web page displays just those terminals where damage and or interruption has been reported, a spreadsheet listing the status of all terminals for which we have reports is attached to the bulletin.  A Japan ports map listing contact numbers for all the major ports is also listed.
