The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted shipping from China in varying amounts. While shipments sent via sea are currently operating regularly out of China, air shipments have slowed down and increased in price.
Businesses who were frequently shipping via air are recommended to look towards ocean shipment options as an alternative. As of August 2020, commercial travel into China is heavily restricted, and there are significantly fewer flights entering the country. Because of this, fewer planes are leaving China, which has increased the cost of air shipments.
Delays due to air shipments are more frequent due to congestion at terminals and increased screenings of both products and flight crew.
For customers looking to ship from China, we strongly encourage you to consider ocean shipping options instead of air or be prepared for higher than the 2019 average rates.
