Warrant Group is continuing to monitor the Coronavirus situation in China to assess the impact on customers' air and ocean shipments.
We have been informed by our partners that their teams are working from home this week with only a small number of personnel working from the office.
Our partners' offices will reopen on Monday 10th February 2020 and will operate a shift pattern to minimise the possibility of cross-contamination.
The majority of carriers will be returning to work on Monday 10th February with similar protection measures in place however some of their employees will work from home until the beginning of March.
Factories are reopening later than usual excluding the anti-epidemic regions.
All carriers will have to adjust their schedules for vessels from China to comply with the restrictions of different countries. Europe is less impacted because transit times are longer than the 14-day quarantine period from the last Chinese port.
Local, domestic logistics companies in China have not returned to work this week which is likely to cause congestion issues in the coming weeks. We will continue to monitor this situation.
Our thoughts are with our colleagues in China during this difficult time.
