Danish shipper Maersk has issued a statement saying that its warehouses business at ports in Shanghai has partially resumed under the closed-loop pandemic management. Although land-bound transportation is still problematic, China has moved to take effective measures to ensuring stable and smooth supply and industrial chains so as to guarantee steady operations of Shanghai core functions as an economic, financial, trade and shipping center, the shipping giant said in a statement.
Maersk, the world's second-largest container shipping company, said that Shanghai ports - including Waigaoqiao and Yangshan - are now operating normally. It said that the problem of both reefer and cargo yard congestion at Shanghai ports has been addressed in the past several days. By closely following the ports situation, the company said that it plans to resume new bookings as early as possible. Maersk halted bookings for all new reefer and some dangerous cargoes from April 14.
