Covid-19 continues to affect Air Freight to/from China 

During the past weeks, we have experienced flights from Asia being cancelled due to several local COVID-19 outbreaks. This has resulted in lack of uplifts as well as delays due to tighter restrictions on the ground.

Especially, Pudong Airport (PVG) is seriously hit, and this has created a domino in all the other Chinese airports as PVG is the largest cargo handling airport in China. Rate levels have increased again because of the situation, and many shipments face delays or even cancelations.

We see the situation affecting the Eastbound cargo as limited volumes are offloaded in PVG to secure more ground time to load Westbound volumes on the flights.

At Blue Water, we continue to monitor the situation, and we constantly seek alternatives.

Please reach out to your local Blue Water contacts for the latest updates on the above. Rest assured that we are always dedicated to move your shipments in the best possible way.

DAP & DDP to the USA – Important info about Power of Attorney

Blue Water Shipping offers and recommends its customers DAP or DDP solutions within the USA. This means the customer will have control of his/her shipments from A to Z.

When you choose a DDP solution, Blue Water should be pleased to assist with customs clearance. In this connection, a Power of Attorney (POA) should always be filled in.

US Customs Border Protection (CBP) has stringent requirements regarding signatures and documentation in relation to issue of POA. CBP requires a copy of driver’s license or passport to accompany the POA, and also that the two persons signing the POA must hold a C title: CEO, CCO, COO etc. Other titles will not be accepted.

If you have any questions to the above, please feel free to approach your local Blue Water contact.
