Status on February 5, 2020

Current Air Market Situation

Along with the currently canceled flights to and from China, some carriers are starting to cancel flights to and from Hong Kong, which will likely lead to capacity constraints and higher rates in the coming weeks.

We are seeing minimal cargo being shipped out of China due to factories remaining closed. Capacity will be tight after China resumes work next week. DSV China and Hong Kong will work closely with all core carriers and vendors to ensure proper capacity planning in line with expected shipping requirements, though scarce capacities and higher rates are expected starting in week 7.

If you have further questions, contact your local DSV representative.

Current Ocean Market Situation

As of today, more carriers have announced blank sailings. 
Additionally, some APAC countries are requiring vessel inspections or quarantines.

Please reach out to your local DSV representative with specific questions about your ocean freight.
