26 February 2020As from this week, all AEL-Berkman China offices have resumed normal work, all branches are fully operational with the majority of our staff working in offices. Regarding our warehousing and VAS activities Qingdao, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Hongkong warehouses are fully operational. Shanghai warehouse is operating with less workers as some who are coming back from other provinces are still in isolation period. Ningbo warehouse starts to accept cargo from medium to high-risk areas like Wenzhou, Taizhou, Hangzhou as long as truckers can provide valid Health Certificate and Certificate of Resumption of Work, delivery by appointment with 2 day in advance is still recommended. Reports say that 70% of the enterprises resumed normal production. If not, it is likely due to below reasons

1) Some factories who can’t provide a safety working environments to employees and failed to get permission from local authorities

2) Even with permission, according to quarantine rules, workers from other places have to be isolated for 14 days, limited availability of workforce

3) Cross-province transportation was severely affected, limited the mobility of workers travelling to the workplaces

We expect the situation will be much improved from early March.
17 February 2020AB HongKong, Shanghai, Xiamen and Qingdao offices: Since Feb 10th, majority of staff have reported duty excepted some were coming back from the so-called high-risk areas. AB Shenzhen, majority of staff serving our partners and customers in office from Feb. 17th. AB Ningbo continues to provide flexible work arrangements. Ningbo warehouse has partly resumed operation from Feb 17th. Trucks from the so-called high-risk areas like Hubei/Wenzhou/Taizhou/Hangzhou were not allow to enter into warehouse. Delivery by appointment at least 2 days in advance is recommended. Many factories and trucking companies are struggling to return to normal production. As per quarantine rules in some areas, workers coming back from other places have to be isolated for 14 days, which limits trucker/worker availability. As TEU demand in market may drop, some carriers are actively introducing blank sailing and port omissions, vessel sailing schedule reliability will also be affected.
