A warehouse containing hazardous chemicals in the Port of Tianjin, China exploded causing significant disruptions to onshore operations. Shipping traffic carrying hazardous products into the port has been halted and operations at two container terminals have been suspended. Port operations, however, are normal for Northern China’s largest port and main maritime gateway to Beijing.
