Freight currently is still being processed as normal, with Customs & Quarantine still working and processing as.

Airlines are reducing flights including maindeck services therefore all regular and scheduled flights are being disrupted. Impact on airlines rates are showing sharp increases.

All Seaports currently are running and  being processed with minimal backlog however due to Biosecurity measures and testing for all arrival crew it is expected backlog with incoming vessels expected, which would also impact export sailings/bookings.
