The pandemic has entered its third year with a partial lockdown again at the Port of Ningbo as a result of China’s “zero-tolerance” COVID policy.  Amid concerns that this may result in another bullwhip of cargo, Ningbo-Zhoushan port says there is no disruption as container throughput remains consistent with the same period last year.  Additionally, Ningbo-Zhoushan port has strengthened the sea-rail transportation and deployed more barges to improve transit capacity between different port areas with having to pass through quarantine areas.  Despite these assurances forwarders are already shifting volumes to other ports to avoid landside delays resulting from suspension of other services, such as trucking services in East China’s Zhejiang province, that might affect fluidity.
