In ports and terminals

The rapid spread of Omicron is disrupting the supply chains, particularly in China.

Shanghai-Shanghai has been under lockdown for more than eight weeks. Originally a two-stage lockdown had been planned, though as the number of confirmed cases continued to increase, the lockdown was extended. The COVID situation is now improving through Shanghai government's strict quarantine measures. The number of daily infections has fallen below 1,000. Under the city's three-phase opening-up plan, precautionary areas has opened in an orderly manner with limited movement and effective control. From May 22 to the end of the month, the locked-down and controlled areas will be further reduced and eventually eliminated to accelerate the shift to normality from June. Shanghai aims to allow life and business to return to normal within the end of June. In the meantime, it is expected that the strict quarantine measures will continuously affect the supply chains for the time being. The manufacturers face various challenges such as parts supply disruptions and labor shortage. The cargo delivery from and to Shanghai Haitong International Automotive Terminal and our operation in the Shanghai port are expected to be heavily disrupted for now. We will keep monitoring how it develops and take necessary measures.
