Toronto, July 27, 2021
On Sunday July 25th, Typhoon In-Fa made landfall in Zhejiang Province, China with a second landfall near Shanghai on Monday July 26th, which has wreaked havoc on the ports of Shanghai and Ningbo. Large container ships were evacuated from Yangshan Port in Shanghai on Saturday in advance of the storm, as port operations have been suspended until further notice. Air cargo is also suffering delays, as hundreds of flights were cancelled Sunday and Monday, in addition to suspension of railway and subway lines. Some carriers will omit Shanghai due to operational constraints, and we expect more vessels will omit Shanghai and Ningbo in the coming days.
We will continue to monitor the situation and advise more updates as they become available.
