With COVID-19 cases continuing to rise, the lockdown imposed in the eastern part of Shanghai, which was originally scheduled to end last Friday, has been extended until further notice. At the same time, a second lockdown of the city’s west began as scheduled.
While Shanghai port is still operational, a decrease in productivity can be expected. Inevitably, this will only worsen congestion issues, which have again been deteriorating in recent months. Adding to the delays, truckers are also among those affected, with only authorised vehicles permitted to be on roads.
Kerry Logistics Ningbo Warehouse Closed
To reduce the risk of importation and spread of COVID in Ningbo, warehouses are required to adhere to epidemic control measures according to the requirements of the Ningbo government.
Unfortunately, our CFS located in Ningbo falls in the government’s control zone, hence has been adversely affected by these measures. As such warehousing operations have been forced to cease until the government permits them to resume. This means:
- Cargo that is already in the warehouse will not move until further advice is received from the government. The tentative timeframe is 14 days.
- In the meantime, our team in Ningbo are looking at alternative warehouses to arrange consols.
- At this stage, operations at Ningbo port are normal, including vessel, transportation, and terminal operations.
Our Customer Service Team will be in contact with impacted parties to provide updated booking details accordingly.
We are closely monitoring the situation in China and will keep you updated with any further changes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local Kerry Representative.
