27/9 - Road haulier situation

Shippers in the UK are facing a significant rise in costs, as the container haulage business becomes increasingly chaotic.

Shipping lines have very few – if any – available haulage bookings until the middle of October or later, but are also imposing storage charges and D&D fees on customers.

Ningbo Port Position

NINGBO PORT SITUATION 11/08/2031 (09:00)

 

Millions of people have been confined to their homes in China as the country tries to contain its largest coronavirus outbreak in months with mass testing and travel curbs.

China reported 55 new locally transmitted coronavirus cases last week as an outbreak of the fast-spreading Delta variant reached more than 20 cities and more than a dozen provinces.

Local governments in major cities including Beijing have now tested millions of residents while cordoning off residential compounds, and placing close contacts under quarantine.

The capital city has cut all rail, local public transport, and air links with areas where coronavirus cases have been found, and closed its doors to tourists, during the peak summer holiday travel season.

Only “essential travelers” are allowed to enter if they have a negative nucleic acid test.

Please note Meishan port terminal of Ningbo has been affected and is closed and suspended all operations with immediate effect due to new COVID19 active cases.

 

Please note there are 6 to 7 ports in Ningbo with only the Meishan terminal, and certain carriers, being affected at the moment.

 

We await further updates and will keep you informed of any vessels that may have been delayed
