The quarantine that began in March in Shanghai is over.
The effects of Shanghai production shutdown on supply chains have spread across the country and around the world, impacting the supply of critical components.
The ships began operating again in Constanta port, the degree of congestion decreasing to 80%.
- The quarantine started in March in Shanghai has ended. It is estimated that weeks or even months will pass before economic activity returns to normal, given previous experiences: For example in Wuhan, it took almost 1 year for the economy to recover from damage caused by the Covid outbreak and quarantine in 2020.
- The Shanghai Covid outbreak was not as severe as the one in Wuhan, but Shanghai’s economy is bigger and more connected to global supply chains. Shanghai and its provinces are a key hub of Chinese industry, with many car and electronics manufacturers located there to quickly access the port.
- Truck traffic has begun to increase gradually as the city relaxes restrictions for drivers, but is now at 30% from the 2019 average.
- The ships began to operate again in the port of Constanta, but with difficulty. The congestion rate of the port decreased from 99.7% to 80%.
