Nordic Manager Goran Karlstrom Talks to Evertiq About The Latest China Lockdown and its Impact on The Supply Chain
Evertiq has previously reported on the closure of Shenzhen, China due to a covid eruption in the city. Everything, except for socially critical functions, was shut down at the same time as travel to Shanghai was restricted by cancelled bus services.
Now Shanghai has also entered a “lockdown”. This time, local authorities want to preserve international transport, but Shanghai has been closed for at least ten days since March 28.
Evertiq contacted Göran Karlström, Country Manager at Fineline Nordic, who has worked actively to manage the logistics challenges.
You have to be a little creative when you put the puzzle together simply, with extra flights, reschedule the shipments, for example via Taiwan, South Korea and Thailand to get as many goods as possible out of China and Hong Kong. Here, however, you can count on a few extra days lead time when the goods are transported a longer distance, says Göran.
