Stopped trucks, foldable beds for workers: What European businesses face with China’s Covid surge

  • Shanghai, home to the world’s largest container shipping port, began a two-part lockdown on March 28 and has yet to announce when restrictions will lift.
  • EU Chamber members estimate Shanghai port volumes are down by about 40% week-on-week, Bettina Schoen-Behanzin, Shanghai chapter chair and a chamber vice president, said Wednesday.
  • Two days after a lockdown in Shenzhen lifted, EU Chamber South China Chapter Chair Klauz Zenkel said a company he visited still had “many, many foldable beds” — which the business planned to keep on hand because they weren’t sure whether they’d need them soon again.
