Hong Kong Port May Lose Customers as Ships Diverted on Strike

Billionaire Li Ka-shing’s Hongkong International Terminals Ltd. is losing customers as a strike by dockworkers causes a 20-fold increase in vessel berthing times at the world’s third-biggest container port.

Evergreen Marine Corp Taiwan Ltd. has diverted at least three ships after more than 10 vessels faced delays, the company said in an e-mailed statement. The time needed to berth a vessel has lengthened to 60 hours from three, the South China Morning Post reported yesterday.
