The NPA said the 16 ships were expected to berth at the ports between March 6 and March 22.

It said while only one of the ships would sail in with petroleum product, the remaining 15 ships would discharge buckwheat, general cargo, bulk frozen fish, base oil, soda hatch, steel, sugar and containers with different goods.

The authority also said 12 of the ships had arrived at the ports and were waiting to berth with frozen fish, base oil, container and petrol. (NAN)
