On the ocean
We are doing our utmost to meet customers’ needs related to space, loading schedule and transit time. However, in some cases, there may be potential disruptions to our service offering and we kindly ask for your understanding under the current circumstances.
In ports and terminals
The rapid spread of Omicron is disrupting the supply chains, particularly in China.
Shanghai, China- The COVID situation in Shanghai is being managed stably, and there has been slightly congestion due to the recent increase in export cargo volume and an increase in the number of ports of call. In addition, due to typhoons that occurred in early and mid-September, congestion of vessels is getting worse. The city is still maintaining strict quarantine control measures throughout the city to prevent the re-spread of COVID. The combination of stringent COVID regulations and growing cargo volumes handled will continue to create challenges for the supplier chain for the time being. We will continue to monitor the situation and take necessary action.
