China’s Covid Curbs Push Truck Freight Into the Slow Lane
The transport of goods on China’s roads continues to face massive disruption due to virus control measures, one month after Beijing ordered local governments to ensure highway traffic could move smoothly.
China’s road freight volume index was down 18% year-on-year in the week ending on May 8, the most recent data from information provider G7 show. The index measures truck traffic volume and the throughput of logistics hubs. That week was the first since late March to show a less than 20% drop.
