From 1 January to noon-time 5 January, Ningbo-Zhoushan port posted a container throughput of 450,800 teu, which was consistent with the number in the same period of last year. 
“Container load and discharge operations remain normal in the three terminals near the epidemic area of Beilun district”, and “vessel call and departure also remains normal so far,” Maersk said in a customer advisory.

The port has issued over 10,000 passes for truck drivers during 1-5 January, the qualified container truck drivers having green health code of Covid-19 will be added into the “white list” and could enter into the port areas normally. 
Additionally, Ningbo-Zhoushan port has strengthened the sea-rail transportation and deployed more barges to improve transit capacity between different port areas with having to pass through quarantine areas. 
As of Tuesday evening 26 locally transmitted cases of Covid-19 had been found in the Beilun area according to a report from Xinhua. The district has seen two rounds of mass testing since 1 January.
China is operating a “zero-covid” policy with whole cities being placed in strict lockdowns, and stoking fears in the shipping community of last year closure of much of Yantian port for a three-week period due to an outbreak in the port.
