The update for Week 35 is as follows:
Overview of port operations
According to data, the overall transit time of trains heading towards Europe has been extended compared to last week.
For example, the normal delivery time from domestic sites to Budapest is about 22 days, while the data shows that it had been close to 30 days last week. The transit time of other unaffected trains remains unchanged; approximately 13-14 days to Mala respectively.
Outbound service: The supply and demand are stable, with plenty of spaces on general and slightly tightening supplies in Chengdu. There was no fluctuation in prices at terminals such as Chongqing, Yiwu, Wuhan, and Jinhua this week and only a few have been adjusted with a drop of $400 for Xian to Mala and an increase of $100 for Chengdu-Lodz.
Inbound service: In the 35th week, Polish customs strictly inspected transit goods and strengthened control measures, resulting in over 50% of return goods being detained. As of now, the Zhengzhou platform has announced the cancellation of plans for return trains from September, and it is said that nearly 80% of their cargoes are stranded in Mala. Some rail platforms, such as Xi'an and Chengdu, have also released the latest embargo lists.
