Ningbo-Zhoushan, China’s second busiest container port is still open for business as Ningbo battles another wave of COVID-19 infections.
Although the port is functioning, trucking services have slowed down as people working in the port or going to the port must produce a negative COVID-19 test.
Forwarders are anticipating delays and have already shifted volumes to the ports of Shanghai which are already congested. This is to avoid any delays despite unaffected carrier schedules at Ningbo.
With less than a month to go before the Winter Olympics begin in Beijing, the government is remaining firm with their zero-COVID-19 policy and is desperately containing the latest outbreak.
Businesses should communicate with their freight forwarding partner to assess whether their goods have been affected by the latest port developments in China and to plan alternatives in the case of future disruptions.
