The South China Morning Post reports that feeder operators are going to suspend service for next weeks. It is a result of strict state-mandated quarantine measures meant to stop any further growth of Covid-19 cases in China.
Shipping carriers who deal with feeder operations, including Hapag-Lloyd, Evergreen, and Ocean Network Express (ONE) are preparing customers for a pause in bookings and anticipating further supply chain delays as a result of the quarantine moves. The pause currently will apply for small port cargo shipments in the Pearl River Delta and Fujian province regions.
Typically, port operations were suspended by feeder operators for 2-3 weeks before the Covid-19 era. Now, the delays will definitely be longer, creating another headache for shippers using smaller Chinese ports. The Chinese New Year starts on January 31, 2022.
