G20 Summit in Hangzhou, China

In preparation for hosting the G20 summit in Hangzhou, China on September 4th & 5th, 2016, factories in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Ningbo are being instructed to prepare for partial and total shutdowns. Shanghai Environment Protection Bureau has ordered at least 255 Shanghai based industrial facilities to shut down for 14 days from August 24th to September 6th to reduce pollution ahead of the G20 summit.

There are an estimated 1,000 factories which are expected to close within 300 km of Hangzhou.

We are encouraging our customers to discuss with their vendors and business partners the impact from the potential factory closures.

We will continue to work with our oversea offices and business partners to gauge the impacts on logistic activities in the area and provide updates on the situation as we learn more.

If you have any questions, please contact your local Nippon Express representative.
