Shanghai lockdown has global ripple effect, EU firms start to feel China's shipping delay | DW News



Shanghai – China’s most populous city and commercial hub – has been in a strict lockdown for about a month. Residents are only allowed to leave their homes in a few parts of the city.

And while the port has been in operation, many exports are not leaving Shanghai because port workers and truck drivers, who transport the goods to and from the port are also affected by the lockdown.

Right now, around a third of the 1,800 container ships stuck in the world, are in or around Shanghai. The city’s hard lockdock is affecting global supply chains. Many companies, which produce in China, haven’t been getting their goods and parts for nearly three weeks. It takes between 5 and 8 weeks for these container ships to make it from China to Germany so businesses here and elsewhere in Europe, are just starting to feel the problems.

Meanwhile there’s a plan underway to isolate dock workers, in an attempt to keep the Shanghai port operational.

  1. Western global companies are suffering badly right now and no one in the west can complain about lockdown because covid is life-threatening, we have learned.

  2. Xi jiping and the communist party wanted to rule for life out of greed, ego and pathetic selfishness. They have yet to pay for the 5 million deaths and 4x that suffering from the poverty they caused. Xi jinping and the communist party should be regarded as terrorists.

  3. Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with You. Blessed are You among women and Blessed is the Fruit of Thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. …

  5. Here is the thing.
    It is called export control.
    How to do it?
    Just block the export hub for few months.

    Why is China doing it? Because it has too much worthless USD.

  6. Its affecting us we people who work in export goods industry's , as some jobs out there affects the business days abd short hours of work"

  7. Its been two years of covid and countries haven't learn that shouldn't rely on another country for their goods.
    Bring some manufacturing back home.

  8. Poor West. Absolutely reliant on foreign trade. Yet still claiming they are an economic powerhouse. What would happen if China closed its markets for the West. The West would be bankrupt immediately. West was build by foreign resources. Without foreign countries the West is absolutely 0,0. The West would hsvr to colonize again

  9. Yes, self-sufficiency has an important indirect effect. If America is busy growing their own vegetables, they won't have the energy and attention to fight all those overseas wars and interfere in the internal politics of other countries.

  10. if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

  11. Thought that was the general idea disruption to the west ….more to do with Russia than a virus …no new thing that China government as no problem letting the people suffer for longer aims…..need to stop relying on China tbh

  12. First the world counting on chinas technology? LMAO if reverse tech is what the word needs- China steals all the tech except for creating Covid ! Second lesson all working people learn….. careful being gone from work too long. They may discover they did fine without you and they don’t need you.

  13. My package from China was supoosed to get to the East Coast of the US in 3 business days and it was delayed for 2 weeks and I have upset customers.

    Once the shipment got out China to Japan, it got to the US within 6 hours.

    China's lockdowns are hurting businesses and we need to cut our dependence on China for manufacturing.
