As per latest updates, not only Hangzhou but also Shanghai, Ningbo and Shaoxing will be affected. Factories will be closed down and/or controlled, port operations will be reduced and traffic will be restricted. This affects companies from a broad range of industries which are often located in designated industrial zones, e. g. the chemical, dying or printing industry.
Based on previous experiences, we expect that these measures will have a negative impact on the export and import cargo flows from/to Ningbo and Shanghai. They will cause cargo rush before the event, cargo backlog during and after the event and capacity shortage.
