A heads-up warning of potential problems in Ningbo.
As of this morning (Wednesday) I have received information from two different sources that a port worker in the Meishan-Island International Container Terminals in Ningbo has been tested positive with Covid. This is not confirmed from official sources.
As of right now it is unclear what ramifications this will have. We might be lucky and it is an isolated incident, or a false positive, and no further problems will ensue.
But if we are less lucky this could lead to impediments in the port of Ningbo which could lead to a similar type of impact in Yantian where the port was partially closed for almost a month. Significant problems both for export cargo as well as for the movement of empty containers into the region would then ensue.
