Ningbo Meidong Container Terminal Corp, a subsidiary of Ningbo Zhoushan Port Company Ltd, stopped all loading and discharging services as of 03:30 local time on Wednesday. The reason for stopping the port’s working activities is the staff tested positive for COVID-19.

Due to the fact that some ports receive a lot of traffic and are important transit points in maritime transport, the duration of the ship’s stay in the port is limited. In some cases, these times are disrupted and unexpected shipment delays occur.
