Show Notes

In this episode, Mike King examines what impact Covid lockdowns in China are having on exports from Asia. What do lower outbound volumes mean for the peak season, container shipping and the global economy? And, if lockdowns are eased in the coming weeks, are carriers and ports in Europe and North America ready to handle a Q3 surge better than they managed in 2021?
