Congestions at Australia’s main ore handling ports worsened last week, according to Global Ports which tracks delays.

A total of 181 Capesize, Panamax and Handymax-class ships have been anchored at the country’s main coal and iron-ore ports, according to Global Ports.

In the next 14 days, 153 vessels are scheduled to arrive which compares with 173 anchored ships and 163 expected arrivals in the prior week.

Australia’s Hay Point port is also now open for loading after a berth was damaged, according to Bloomberg.

The ports expect another 86 vessels in the next two weeks, up from 59 the week before, it said.
