Ningbo in lockdown

Date Added: 18 October 2022

Ningbo disruption following Covid 19 outbreak

We are receiving reports from our partners in Ningbo detailing disruption to services as the area around Ningbo has gone into lockdown, in keeping with China's zero tolerance approach to managing Covid 19.

The situation in Ningbo currently

  • Terminal, port and warehouse in Beilun are currently closed.
  • The whitelist system for container truck drivers has been implemented. However, most container trucks were blocked in truck parking lot as one positive case was found in the parking lot on Oct 16th.
  • Very small quantum trucks are on the road, but drivers with travel permits are not welcomed in other areas.
  • FCL container pre-carriage and delivery by round-trip truck is severely impacted.
  • Carriers are trying to offer alternatives for FCL container pre-carriage, such as feeder service from Zhapu/ Wenzhou /Taizhou area and rail service from Huzhou / Hangzhou /Jinhua area. This is subject to container equipment availability in locals and feeder/ rail space.
Currently we understand that only the Beilun area of Ningbo is being affected by lockdown, for cargo originating outside of this area, Shanghai can be offered as an alternative option, although additional trucking costs may apply.
