The city of Ningbo, home to the world’s largest port, reported 10 COVID-19 cases over the weekend. This has sparked increased testing of workers across most of the city and adding to delays among truck workers heading to the city’s container terminals.
The source of the outbreak has been located in Beilunm which has now gone into lockdown. Beijing’s zero-Covid policy has helped the region to clamp down on local outbreaks. However, the new threat of Omicron has lead to new outbreaks.
Businesses need to communicate with their forwarders in the event of any disruptions that may affect their exports.

REMINDER: Prepare for full customs controls from 1st January 2022
As of the 1st January 2022, easements on full customs controls have been removed and customs checks have been introduced. Prior notification of agri-food imports are now required, but how soon before shipment is needed will vary depending on transport route.
The temporary easement for the requirement to hold supplier declarations (where required) prior to issuing statements on origin for export to the EU has ceased for businesses using the UK-EU trade agreement. Suppliers’ declarations will usually be necessary where you purchase goods for onward sale unaltered, or you need evidence of the originating status of production inputs to calculate the origin of your goods.
