Supply chain disruptions expected as parts of Shanghai goes on lockdown

As a provider of international container shipping services, Davies Turner notes that the city of Shanghai, home of the busiest and highest performing container terminal in the world, woke up on Monday, 28 March 2022, to a mass lockdown in the Pudong New Area, a 1,200 sq km zone on the eastern bank of the Huangpu River.

Authorities announced a mass lock down for four days of mass testing as the Chinese financial hub is trying to contain the spread of a coronavirus outbreak, although Pudong is not alone in this as other key districts of Jinshan, Fengxian, Chongming and part of Minhang also went into lockdown on the same day.

It is expected that residents of these districts will be confined to their neighborhood and all public and private transport will be barred from traveling..

This ban in the world’s busiest container terminal is giving rise to concerns of supply chain disruptions as it could affect the movement of port workers and the activities at the Yangshan container terminal.
