IS SHANGHAI PORT AFFECTED BY THE LOCKDOWN MEASURES?

2022-04-08

Ranked first among the world?s largest container ports with 42,000,000 TEUs, the Port of Shanghai comprises both a deep-sea port and a river port.

Shanghai port is operating normally, with no delays in vessel loading and off- loading of cargo.
The port is operating as usual to guarantee the smooth flow of goods along the supply chain. Currently waiting time is between one and two days Which remains good at 2 weeks of this measure.

The main problem about this lockdown is driven by the trucking efficiency and capacity limitations. Measures are very strict and if the drivers don?t have a negative test they won?t be allowed to access to major cities, not all residents have a test. Also consider main transit is allowed for protection equipment and essential goods.
A strong recommendation is if there is an urgent cargo, use alternative ports as Ningbo, to avoid delays. If the destination port is Shanghai and your goods are DG or reefers use alternative ports.

Shanghai lockdown is extended indefinitely.
