Ningbo Meidong Closures

A coronavirus case has forced the closure of the Ningbo Meidong container terminal.

Operations were suspended on Wednesday 11.08.21 after a worker tested positive with the Delta variant of Covid-19.

The terminal is currently locked down with no movement of vehicles in or out and operations shutdown. All close contacts have been placed under observation.

Ningbo-Zhoushan in eastern China is the world’s third-busiest cargo port, and this closure reduces the capacity for container cargo at the port by about a quarter.

China continues to operate a zero-Covid strategy of travel restrictions, locking down cities, and testing entire populations, when cases spring up.

We will endeavour to ship cargo from alternative terminals while this closure in Meidong remains in place.
