The coronavirus that has emerged from China is now having an impact to the freight industry around the world.
With the extension of CNY holidays the Wuhan & Hubei governments are in lock down which may extend past February 9th.
Airline's will be ceasing their import & export operations to/from China up until March 1st, which is still subject to change at anytime.
Ocean carriers have advised of some blank sailings in early Feb, however services are still running & there are no other changes to their current export scheduling.
New restrictions are being applied to the arrival of vessels into Australia.
All vessels departing/calling via China that have a transit time of less than 14 days will be held from docking until the 14 day minimum is reached.
