COVID-19: updates on DACHSER’s operations in China

Most branches are operating with skeleton staffing while the rest of our staff are working from home due to local hygiene and preventive measures.

Though our branches are open, operations are not resuming to full capacity yet. Traffic controls are in place throughout the country; other suppliers in the transport chain are also operating with limited staff and reduced capacity. The shortage of truckers is currently the major challenge.

Please excuse us for the delay in some processes, as most of the units in the supply chain within China are not functioning in full capacity.

Transport logistics in China

While we are trying our best to keep your supply chain as smooth as possible, please consider that other units in the supply chain did not resume full capacity yet. Carriers and terminals are gradually resuming operations with skeleton staff. Delays and other operational issues are expected.

Road:

  • Lack of truckers is currently the major issue in China. The service is resuming with less than 50% of the usual labour supply;
  • Inter-cities and inter-provinces trucking are especially challenging due to increasingly tightened regulations on road, making road journeys heavily delayed.

Railway:

  • Rail carriers reduced departures from and to China in February;
  • Railway platforms which are now closed, are expected to resume from March 2020, i.e. Yiwu and Zhengzhou, detailed schedule to be updated;
  • Other status of railway remains the same, please refer to our last update;

Air:

  • Airlines resumed freighters to and from China;
  • Capacity is still an issue since many of the airlines suspended passenger flights;
  • Charter services are available with guaranteed uplift and transit time for our customers with urgent shipment;

Sea:

  • Shortage of truckers is the major issue;
  • Increasing challenge on equipment supply;
  • Carriers have reduced sailings to and from China;
  • Westbound: Backlog is expected once the factories are fully back into operations, leading to shortage of truckers and space;
  • Eastbound: Intense space shortage;
  • Ocean terminals are operating, except Wuhan;

At DACHSER, we have contingency measures in place and will offer you the best alternative solutions to keep your supply chain running in case any shipment is affected. Please rest assure that we will keep you updated via our website.

COVID-19: Further update on DACHSER’s operations in China

General status

Factories and businesses are gradually resuming operations.

To prevent infection at workplace, authorities have taken preventive measures: enterprises are required to submit applications to local authorities before they are allowed to resume work. Applicants need to demonstrate they are observing strict hygiene requirements and are capable of providing adequate hygiene consumables to the workforce.

Even if the application is approved, only a very limited number of staff are allowed to enter the workplace. The measure is aimed to reduce the chance of people being affected. Therefore, most of the enterprises are operating with skeleton staffing, and have their employees working from home, if applicable.

DACHSER branches

  • All DACHSER branches except Kunshan and Wuhan have resumed business with skeleton staffing in the office due to local quarantine procedures and preventative measures;
  • Part of our team members are working from home to keep the operations ongoing;
  • Kunshan warehouse will re-open once approvals from the authorities are granted;
  • Wuhan is closed and scheduled to re-open on February 24, subject to change depending on the situation;
  • Please excuse us for the delay in some processes, as most of the units in the supply chain within China are not functioning in full capacity. Please refer to Transport logistics in China at the next section;
  • Hong Kong branch is fully operational. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will advise if our ability to operate is impacted.

Brexit: From January 31, 2020 with a transition period

Britain will leave the European Union on January 31, 2020. According to the current circumstances, nothing will change in goods traffic between the countries of the European Union and Great Britain until the end of this year.

After that, a free trade agreement between the EU countries and Great Britain should come into force. However, it is still unclear whether such a free trade agreement can be negotiated and approved by the end of the year.

The Brexit checklist (see below) therefore still provides an overview of the necessary preparatory measures. If you have any questions, please contact your responsible contact person at the respective DACHSER branch.

National strike in France – update week 4

During the past weeks, massive strikes against a planned pension reform have paralyzed public transport in France. The strike is still going on this week (week 4).

French ports, which are already impacted by days of strike, are getting congested. Alternative options like Antwerp, Genoa or Barcelona are getting congested as well, therefore delays on bookings and pick up/delivery with those ports are expected.

Here is an overview of the planned strike activity in the French ports:

  • Dunkerque: dockers/stevedores 23/01 & 24/01; tugboats 22/01 to 25/01 until 6 am
  • Le Havre: dockers/stevedores 22/01 to 25/01 until 6 am; tugboats 24/01 to 25/01 until 8 am
  • Montoir: dockers/stevedores 22/01 to 25/01 until 6 am; tugboats 21/01 to 24/01 until 9 am
  • FOS: dockers/stevedores 22/01 to 25/01 until 6 am; tugboats 20/01 to 23/01 until 9 am

Pick-up and delivery by rail would be also difficult. Air freight is not concerned so far, but we will keep you informed about that.

Get assured that our operational teams will do their utmost to minimize the effects of the strike.

In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your responsible contact person in the respective DACHSER branch.

The UK election 2019 - Update

The UK general election on December 12, 2019 gave a clear result in favor of the Torries. As a result, it can now be assumed that the UK will leave the European Union on January 31, 2020 on the basis of the withdrawal agreement that was negotiated on October 17, 2019.

This withdrawal agreement includes a transition period until December 31, 2020. During this period, a comprehensive trade agreement between the UK and the European Union is to be agreed. Until the expiry of this period, no material effects of the withdrawal are to be felt. Thus, according to the current status, only marginal restrictions regarding deliveries to and from the UK can be expected during the transition period.

In case of any questions, please contact your contact person of DACHSER.
