Critical Cargo Updates from China – January 30, 2020

As Delmar is closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak in China, we have gathered the following critical updates from the region:

Air Cargo

Out of an abundance of caution, in some cases due to government advisories, several airlines have temporarily suspended flights to China, affecting commercial cargo schedules globally. For example, Air Canada has ceased flights to China from January 30 through February 29.

Ocean Cargo

While there may be slight slowdowns as a result of the extended Chinese New Year holiday, for the moment, ocean carriers and the ports are mitigating any impact with extended on-duty personnel.

Delmar Offices

As a result of Chinese New Year, please take note of the below Delmar China office re-open schedule. It’s important to note that key personnel continue to work remotely to ensure that business runs as smoothly as possible.
