The global chain has been facing difficult times since the beginning of the pandemic. Stalled demand, container shortages and rising freight rates are just a few items on the list.
The most recent crisis episode is now taking place at the Port of Yantian, which is located in Shenzhen, China.
As one of the busiest ports in the world, the Port of Yantian has experienced a suspension in container acceptance due to a new outbreak of Covid-19.
As with the Suez Canal, the consequences of this congestion may be considerable, such as an increase in sea freight rates.
To provide a more complete overview of this issue, we will hold the webinar "Crisis in the Port of Yantian: reflexes on global logistics".
