— Update from Asian Tigers China:
Xingang Port in mainland China has been placed into a COVID outbreak related lockdown effective immediately. This affects all shipments to and from Beijing and Tianjin. This lockdown will continue through the upcoming National Day holidays 1st – 10th October. We do not have any further official/government information on when lockdown may be lifted and service resumes. Furthermore, lack of port processing will cause a back-log which may take weeks to resolve.
