FACTORIES SHUT AND NINGBO RESTRICTS TRUCKERS IN ZHEJIANG PROVINCE LOCKDOWNS

2021-12-28

Lockdowns across China?s Zhejiang province have prompted multiple factory closures, and new restrictions have been placed on trucking. China reported new Covid cases in Tianjin and Guangzhou this week, including the Omicron variant, but the outbreak in Zhejiang, another major manufacturing heartland, remains the most serious.

According to Chinese media, the restrictions have impacted textile firms and their access to Ningbo-Zhoushan Port, since truck drivers are reluctant to enter the area due to quarantine requirements. Furthermore, Ningbo has tightened restrictions on truck drivers entering its container terminals, depending on which areas they have visited previously. It is inevitable that the epidemic situation in the city will have a certain impact on the truck transport of import and export containers, because many areas require truck drivers to provide a nucleic acid negative test certificate. It takes time to do the test and get the certification, so it will cause a slight delay in inland trucking.
