Georgia ports suffer 'precipitous drop in imports' on virus outbreak
Date:2020-03-25 Readers:
THE Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) said in a coronavirus update on its website that it has temporarily discontinued Saturday truck gate hours at the ports of Savannah and Brunswick as it has "experienced a precipitous drop in imports".

However, there are brighter days on the horizon, according to the GPA, reported American Shipper.

"Bookings on the water show a strong increase, which is an important indicator for a return to normalcy," the GPA said. "Another positive factor for Savannah is increased demand from importers, with projects coming online such as new distribution centres supplying US factories for domestic production.

"Further, GPA is receiving multiple reports that indicate Chinese supply lines and factories are resuming normal production," it said.

Factories throughout China shut down first for Chinese New Year and then remained closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Port of Los Angeles has had 41 vessel calls cancelled for ships expected to arrive between mid-February and April 1, according to executive director Gene Seroka.

"While cargo volume has been soft, manufacturing will begin to ramp up in China, which means we should see a start of having more ships and more cargo coming in the months ahead. While the potential surge in imports may cause some logistical challenges, that likely will mean more work and a boost to the local economy," Mr Seroka said.
