Shanghai COVID-19 Lockdown from March 28 to April 10

Shanghai city officials have announced that they will launch extensive lockdowns due to a surge of COVID-19 cases.  

Lockdown Schedule:  

  • From March 28 to April 10, the eastern side of Shanghai (Pudong) will be locked down. 
  • From April 1 to April 5, the western side of Shanghai (Puxi) will enter lockdown.  

Impact on Logistic Services:  

Air Freight  

  • Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) remains operational, but transport in and out of the terminals is expected to be difficult due to the lack of available trucking.   
  • Many air carriers have announced flight cancellations. 

Ocean Freight  

  • Ports facilities remain operational. 
  • The main constraint is limited truck access to bring cargo to and from the neighbouring provinces. 
  • Some ocean carriers have announced vessel delays or are omitting Shanghai calling off some voyages, and some have announced blank sailings.
