The Ningbo-Zhoushan port’s Meidong container terminal reopened on Wednesday, after being closed for two weeks due to a COVID-19 outbreak and one week after some cargo operations commenced on a limited basis.   The Meidong terminal closed on Aug. 11 after a carrier worker tested positive for COVID-19. According to local reports, subsequent testing of about 50,000 people in the area showed no further cases. Truckers began picking up containers on Wednesday, but their arrivals were staggered to avoid congestion.  The terminal is mainly used by the Ocean Alliance, which consists of COSCO Shipping/OOCL, CMA CGM, and Evergreen Line.  It is expected that the terminal will return to normal operations by September 1st.
