Notice of the Ministry of Communications: Do not arbitrarily reduce the number of calls at Shanghai Port

At present, due to the impact of the epidemic in Shanghai Port, many shipping companies have begun to cancel the call at Shanghai Port and will transfer dangerous goods and reefer containers to other ports for unloading. (Check the article: Maersk, ONE, Yixing, etc. began to cancel the call at Shanghai Port! The impact of the closure control is becoming more and more serious! UPS fuel surcharges continue to rise...)


On the 12th, the Ministry of Transport issued a notice on effectively strengthening the work of ensuring the smooth flow of waterway transportation. The notice stated that it will go all out to ensure the smooth operation of Shanghai Port.
