Ningbo Port halts operations amid covid-19 outbreak

The transportation of manufactured goods and commodities from the world’s most crucial port has slowed down dramatically after a suspension of trucking services in several parts of East China’s Zhejiang. There are strict controls on the movement of trucks carrying goods to or from the Beilun district in Ningbo after several Covid-19 cases were reported in the area, informed A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S. This COVID-induced suspension and restrictions on truckers in some areas in and around Zhejiang, has put a stop on operations at some of the yards and warehouses at Ningbo port. The curbs began last week after the Beilun district reported an outbreak of Covid-19 which led to the closure of colleges, warehouses, and firms close to the port.
