Our Shenzhen office has advised that 2 cases of omicron strain of covid has been reported in areas of Shenzhen, and as per government policy those areas are now in lockdown and all citizens are required to be tested.
At this point there is no clear indication of the impact to local trucking / driver availability and terminal operations, however based on previous incidents we do expect disruption.
It is likely that factories and warehouses within Shenzhen will also be restricted, so please liaise with your suppliers to determine impact to their operations.
Unfortunately, the delay will be compounded by the pending Chinese New Year celebrations.
As per government directive our teams in Shenzhen will be required to isolate and that may result in some delay to processing
We will continue to update when and if further information becomes available
