Shipping from China affected by coronavirus

Tags: , , , ,


Most cities in China have begun normal working again, but some shipping line offices will remain closed or be providing a limited service. Exporters factories are not necessarily working at 100%; some cities in China have closed their borders for quarantine purposes, but port terminals seem to be running at capacity.

Because of the disruption, shipping lines are advising estimated delays of between 2-4 days for vessel departures and they may omit certain ports of call to recover the delay in schedules.

Exports which have already left China may be delayed or not delivered, as many countries are not allowing vessels from China to dock until crews have been confirmed as virus free after the quarantine period.

Flights to and from China have been partly resumed, but only priority and express bookings are being accepted.
Air cargo arriving in China are being delayed because domestic transport in China is short of labour to operate their services.
