Covid-19 restrictions lead to South China feeder services suspension
Due to the Covid-19 quarantine requirements for the crews of the coastal feeders running between South China and Hong Kong waters, feeder operators announced their services will be suspended for a minimum of six 6 weeks prior to Lunar New Year 2022, which is 1-5 February 2022.
Therefore, Ocean Network Express (ONE) will also temporarily suspend the acceptance of the cargo bound for the ports in the South China area that require the usage of the domestic feeders to reach the final destination.
However, the Singaporean company noted that any cargo to South China that can be serviced by an ocean vessel will not be affected.
For any cargo that is already in route and will not arrive prior to the services being suspended, ONE said its customer service team will contact the customer.
Following is the schedule by province that has been provided to ONE by the feeder operators. The effective date is when service will stop for import cargo.
