Toronto, December 17, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 quarantine requirements for ships crews on the feeder service running between South China and Hong Kong, ocean carriers will suspend these feeder services from mid-January until the end of February. This is going to affect all cargo going to or sailing from the Pearl River Delta (PRD) Region of China (Dongguan, Guangzhou, Huangpu, Huizhou, Foshan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Xiamen, Fuzhou, etc.). The PRD ports use feeder services to connect with mother vessels departing from Yantian/Shekou and Nansha to Canada and the USA.
During the period from mid-January to end of February, the feeder service from the PRD ports will be suspended. If you have a shipment during this time frame which originates in one of the PRD ports, please contact us to discuss your options.
