Shanghai container handling nears pre-lockdown levels

Shanghai's daily average container throughput has recovered to 126,000 TEU, or 95% of pre-lockdown levels. Throughput on 18 June alone reached a single-day high of 142,500 TEU. The figures were released by China's Ministry of Transport (MOT) during a press briefing on Monday.

According to MOT’s transport service department director-general Cai Tuanjie, all the ministry’s divisions are working with authorities in Shanghai and nearby provinces to accelerate work and production in logistics and transportation. Vice-minister Zhao Chongjiu said at the meeting: "It’s expected that in the first half of this year, the national railway, water transport, and postal freight volume will exceed the level of the same period in 2019.”

While trucking availability was limited due to Covid-19 testing during the lockdown, Zhao said this has improved: “The current national transportation network is generally smooth, the national highways and port waterways remain unblocked, and there are no temporarily closed expressway toll stations and service areas.”
