CY ( Container Yard)

The term CY means the location designated by carrier in the port terminal area for receiving, assembling, holding, storing and delivering containers, and where containers may be picked up by shippers or re-delivered by consignees. No container yard (CY) shall be a shipper's, consignee's, NVOCC's, or a forwarder's place of business, unless otherwise provided. Importance of a proper container yard is undisputed in the container scenario as the ship load / discharge planning is fully integrated in the CY planning as the containers are either received or sent out directly from/to the container vessel. It has unique marking & traffic planning system so that.
