Shanghai COVID-19 cases are still high and infections have spread over to other cities in East China (Jiangsu Province and Zhejiang Province). Jiangsu Province is home to many electronics and automotive manufacturing operations. Kunshan and part of Taicang are now locked down and many other cities in East China are also being greatly impacted by the pandemic. As a result of the Chinese Government’s zero-COVID policy, traffic control for road transportation is getting ever stricter and it is difficult to secure trucks to bring freight to Shanghai or alternative airports.
For air import into Zhengzhou (CGO), freight with customs transfer to PVG will not be accepted from April 11 onward. All import shipments with a final destination at PVG (Shanghai) need to be custom cleared at CGO airport. Moreover, for improved operational efficiency, import shipments need to be palletized only; no loose carton shipments will be accepted from the airline at origin.
