According to local officials, Shanghai Port is now operating at 95 % of the normal level as COVID-19 lockdowns ease. Notwithstanding, the improvement in the port hasn’t been accompanied by a rebound in trucking, as a shortage of drivers and vehicles continues to hamper the delivery of goods to and from the port. As local lockdowns are lifted, the impact on production is likely to be felt for months, with a strong demand for raw materials and then a surge of finished goods bound for North American markets. The expected flood of imports into North America will likely lead to additional supply chain pressures in Canada and the United States through the summer months.
