Update on the logistics situation in China

Following on from our previous notification, the Chinese authorities have introduced different measures on national, provincial and city level to cope with the Coronavirus outbreak.

Recently, the State Council announced that the Lunar New Year holiday, which originally was scheduled to end on 30 January, will be extended to 2 February. Additional announcements from several provincial and city governments followed, mandating that companies shall not resume operations immediately, but keep offices closed for longer, in most cases until 9 February.

Until offices re-open, DSV China will implement an “on-duty” schedule for our staff in line with government regulations. DSV is strongly committed to the safety of its employees while working to mitigate any potential impact on the supply chains and operations of our customers. To this end, we have established several preventive actions to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees, now and upon their return from the Lunar New Year holiday.

At this stage, it is likely that further government instructions will be released to contain the quickly evolving situation. DSV China has therefore implemented a Business Continuity Planning (BCP) committee that will frequently update our customers on new regulations and government guidelines, which may affect our operations and processes. We aim to swiftly advise you on the impact of these regulations and offer contingency measures to the extent possible.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you informed about the latest developments, for urgent enquiries, please reach out to your account manager.
