Delays on ocean freight imports from South China

The port of Yantian in the Shenzhen area has been partially closed at the end of May due to a coronavirus outbreak in the area. In those vessels where infections have been detected, the crew has been requested to quarantine for 14 days.

Container handling is congested at Yantian terminals. This may slow deliveries from all over Southern China, and if the situation persists, ships may need to be rerouted to other ports causing further delays.

Varova ocean freight team will provide additional information if needed.
