Coronavirus Response Impacts Transportation

China's response to its coronavirus outbreak is impacting international freight transportation in a number of ways.
  • Supply interruptions as some factories, transportation companies, and ports shut down.
  • Reduced air cargo capacity to and from China.
  • Shortages of empty ocean containers.
  • High volatility in transportation rates as desperate shippers overpay for constrained capacity.

UTS is actively managing these problems. For instance, we're bidding transportation activity as soon and as broadly as possible to control costs.  You can help by providing advance notice of any planned transportation to and from Asia.
