According to reports from Reuters, citing unnamed sources, some major Chinese ports have delayed clearing goods from the United States, disrupting imports of key products such as pork and soybeans.

"The port of Shanghai put on hold clearing some US imports through customs, said an official at a company in the coastal city, which handles customs clearance for importers," Reuters said, noting the source said that he had spoken to customs officials.

A separate source in Shanghai told Reuters that customs brokers were slowing the clearance process because of confusion about how and when to implement duties.

"They're holding everything ... because there's uncertainty," he said.

"But overall, this weekend they should be able to identify what the taxes are and how they should be implemented, and they should be processed as normal."

The sources told Reuters that while there did not appear to be any direct instructions to hold up cargoes, some customs departments were waiting until they had received official guidance from the central government.

China's General Administration of Customs did not comment on the delays and said the agency will implement the tariffs as announced on Thursday, Reuters said.
