Shenzhen Partially Lifts Lockdown
Shippers will be relieved with news from Shenzhen, where local authorities are easing lockdown rules as a COVID scare passes without too great damage to supply chains, especially compared with an outbreak last summer that wiped out three-quarters of the vital boxport’s productivity for three weeks.
Most of Shenzhen, not including the port, has been in what was planned to be a seven-day lockdown since last Sunday as part of China’s so-called dynamic zero-COVID strategy. However, factory operations and public transport in four districts, including Yantian and a special economic zone, have been put back into operation, the local government said late on Thursday.
