Oh no, not Ningbo! COVID case shuts down container terminal

South Carolina ports moved a record volume of containers in July, the first month of its 2021-2022 fiscal year.

Chinese authorities on Wednesday closed a major container terminal at the Port of Ningbo after a dock worker tested positive for COVID, raising fears among traders that supply chain disruptions that occurred when Yantian terminal in Shenzhen reduced output by 70% for a month earlier this summer would be repeated.

All operations at the Ningbo Meidong Container Terminal, also referred to as the Meishan Terminal, were immediately suspended following the positive test results, according to local media reports and logistics operators.
