Current Air & Sea Freight  Market Conditions

In general, the activity of exporting good from China is minimal, but it is expected that there will be pressure on capacity when production is back to normal.

Air carriers and shipping companies continue to cancel departures to and from China, which especially challenges import capacity.

For information on your cargo, please reach out to your local DSV representative .
