China bans ad hoc air charters until December

     China air freight boxes
  This is the season for heavy airfreight shipments from China.

The main cargo airports in China (Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Guangzhou) are facing airfreight backlogs as manufacturers are rushing to export their products to North America and Europe.

In addition to the normal peak season volumes, the Chinese Civil Aviation Administration has imposed a ban on the addition of charter capacity, extra flights or new lane applications, based on poor on-time performance by charter operators at these airports. This restriction has further compounded backlogs.

We are experiencing on average 3-4 day delays on uplift of cargo from these airports. This is also causing volatility in air rates which are changing on an almost daily basis.
