SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Typhoon Soulik is expected to make landfall in Taiwan and the Philippines in the coming days and this could delay chemical shipments, shipping sources said on Wednesday.

“Vessels will slow down from north China. This might cause slight delays,” said a Singapore-based shipbroker.

Changes to shipping routes are also likely, especially if weather conditions worsen, according to a Jakarta-based shipowner.

“Captains may choose to re-route. They may take a different course, and will probably be late by one or two days, if the weather takes a turn for the worst,” the shipowner added.
