The Impact of COVID-19 on Shipping

The Impact of COVID-19 on Shipping

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is sweeping through the global economy but the global shipping industry continues to operate keeping world trade running despite facing severe disruptions.

Starting from China we have seen the factory of the world largely closing its doors during the first two months of 2020. But now, just as it is starting to recover, COVID-19 is sweeping the developed economies in Europe and the Americas. What will this mean for shipping and freight forwarding?

Uneek is closely following the government guidelines and the latest information from health authorities. At this time we are working closely with our customers to reduce disruption and keep their supply chain moving. This can sometimes be a challenge but working together we can often find a solution.

Guidance and advice for the freight transport industry can be found on the www.gov.uk website, please see this link for the latest information. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-freight-transport
