Istim in Port Klang only warehouse with queue in LME network

Queues to remove metal from London Metal Exchange-approved warehouses were mostly non-existent at the end of April, according to latest LME data.

The waiting time to take aluminium out of Istim warehouses in Port Klang was 26 as of the last working day in April 2020. This compares with a waiting time of 15 days at the end of March.
