Operations at Ningbo port are currently suspended. This follows the detection of a single case of COVID-19 among port staff. The worker, who is part of the workforce at Ningbo Meidong Container Terminal, tested negative on 8th August before being tested again on 10th August.
All empty pick-ups and gate-in into the port have stopped until further notice, and ships have been turned away this morning.
On Monday, it was reported that there were unprecedented volumes of tankers, bulk carriers and containerships backing up outside Ningbo-Zhoushan port. Initially, the ports authority said the operating system was down before the Ningbo Municipal Health Commission revealed that a worker had been infected.
We are awaiting further information and will send additional updates once available. Meanwhile, our teams are currently identifying impacted shipments and looking at options to expedite them. Thank you for your continued support during this challenging time
