back is great. The epidemic has led to a ban on foreign vehicles entering ports and a sharp rise in inland freight rates.

Second,local governments have taken restrictions on transportation to prevent the epidemic. foreign ports will inevitably strictly 

control the berthing of Chinese vessels, which will lead to the extension of irregular berthing time and the extremely complicated 

process. In the event of any discrepancy or abnormality, such as fever or suspected illness among the crew, the crew will be 

quarantined and the ship will probably be berthed off. 

In particular, some countries have begun to close their borders and ports of customs clearance, making it very difficult to declare exports, 

and sea freight rates may soar. 

Thus may cause some overseas customers request to cancel the order or pay liquidated damages according to the contract.
