The Beilun District, home to several container terminals of Ningbo-Zhoushan port, has again tightened epidemic control measures after a Covid outbreak was announced earlier this week. The initial three-day lockdown, which began on Oct 14, has since been extended until further notice. Restrictions will inevitably impact logistics operations and supply chains; please keep the following in mind:

  • Container terminals located in the Beilun district are closed
  • A limit has been introduced for vessel routings in/out of the terminal
  • Expect Shipping Line schedule changes over the coming weeks
  • Ningbo-Zhoushan port is offering closed-loop access for FCL trucks in and out of container port areas
  • Container transport between Beilun and other districts is permitted for authorized drivers, meaning FCL movements are feasible where factories can stuff containers
  • Potential container shortages as many empty depots are in medium/high-risk areas
  • Kerry Logistics has commenced operations at a backup CFS warehouse outside of Beilun for future shipments
  • Kerry Logistics BLP operations have been suspended until further notice from the Chinese Government

Should you have any concerns, please reach out to your local Kerry Representative.
