Novel Coronavirus

Update on current situation

Life and business in China continue to be strongly impacted by epidemic related interventions, but most recently we see strong indications that the government is preparing to slowly open China for business again, at least in those regions least affected by the coronavirus. As businesses and transportation infrastructure gradually open across the country, DSV China is equally increasing its staff numbers in our offices, while strictly maintaining safety measures to safeguard the well-being of our staff.

As the situation in China continues to evolve, we have updated our Q&A advisory to include the latest developments.

Key questions have been sorted into 4 categories:

  • DSV China update
  • General market update
  • Contingency measures at DSV
  • General questions

Considering the disruptions, we understand that you are concerned how quickly supply chains and international shipping can resume normal operational levels now that China is reopening for business. In addition, there is a general concern that the market will almost certainly face capacity shortages for a period of time.

DSV is aware of these concerns and working proactively with our customers to understand shipping requirements for the coming weeks and to map these against available capacities. As one of the largest air and sea service providers we will fully utilize our global core carrier programmes to solicit additional capacities, as needed and available.

If you foresee significant shipping needs in the coming weeks, we encourage you to contact your dedicated DSV account manager who will assist you with the necessary planning and preparations.
