Tokyo Port operating hours

From 19 July to 6 August 2021, during the Olympics, the opening hours for picking up containers will be expanded so that it is possible to pick up from 07.30am to 04.00am the following day. This is something that the EBC views in a very positive light. Under normal circumstance the pick-up hours are between 08.30am to 16.00. As the cargo handled by Tokyo Port, or any other port in Japan, has relatively compared to other ports in the world drastically decreased, we believe extended opening or operating hours will make the port more attractive to use.


  • The EBC request that the extended opening hours are made permanent, and that other ports in Japan follow suit.
