Chinese port congestion worsens

With a comprehensive portfolio of ocean freight forwarding services around the globe, Davies Turner notes media reports that Shenzhen might have got through the worst of another Covid lockdown, but the ripple effects of China’s battle with omicron are seeing ships back up along the nation’s coastline with carriers forced to change schedules to avoid growing congestion issues.

Shenzhen came out of a seven-day lockdown on Monday, and while its port workers were allowed to work for the duration of the shutdown, limited trucking and warehousing availability has created some supply chain issues. An update from Danish liner Maersk yesterday forecast vessel waiting times will increase in Shenzhen. Elsewhere, Covid flare-ups are causing port pressures at key gateways including Qingdao, Shanghai and Ningbo-Zhoushan.
