In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis Worldwide, the entire transport sector in each country seems to be changing minute by minute. We encourage freight forwarders from around the world to post updates for their countries by transport modes (air freight, sea frail, rail, trucking), by port, for Customs and other categories. All submissions are dated along with the name and email of the person submitting, so that you can follow up directly with anyone.

We encourage everyone to update this for their country as often as things change so that we all benefit, and we are all current as this crisis evolves.

India1. All Ports are operational 2. Some delays expected on vessel operations due to shortage of operators, internal transport vehicles 3. Some ports may have challenges managing the windows as for vessels coming from China, a 14-day quarantine is a must now (including transit) Government of India has extended the restriction on the scheduled international commercial passenger aircraft to land in India from 22nd March 2020 until 14th April 2020, which will result in a delay in import and export activities of air cargo. While Freighter options for A/f are available for some destinations but the problem remains about road movement because other than emergency & pharma nothing is allowed to move. 1. Rail movement is not an issue so far as we see there are no restrictions on freight trains.Trucking services have been suspended due to the lockdown. Only essential services/goods are allowed to be transported with a special permit given by the authorities. All major cities have closed their borders & no interstate transport also allowed during this period Government has orders restrictions on public transport including rail, bus, auto, taxies etc till 14th April.• Government has orders restrictions on public transport including rail, bus, auto, taxies etc till 14th April . • All major cities have closed their borders & no interstate transport also allowed during this period.

As per Kuwait government directive, essentials like Food products and Medical supplies are given priority for Customs clearance. Any other commercial cargo, the customs clearance procedures are delayed and quite slow.

On this account the rates are surging and highly volatile. KSA customs has issued a circular that only Foodstuff and Medical supplies are permitted through their borders. Commercial overland shipments for other cargo in and out of Kuwait are also hence put on hold. Customs clearance and ministry approvals for commercial cargo other than foodstuff or medical supplies are taking longer than normal time frames due to the current difficult situation.  No updateNo updateKuwait has implemented partial curfew from five in the evening until four in the morning. All malls, parks, beaches and public/private gatherings are not permitted and asked by the official authorities to be avoided as a precautionary measure. Kuwait port authorities and customs are working in order to ensure access of food products and essential consumer products to the general public.  Many companies have implemented "Work from Home" culture in their offices in order to follow government directives of social distancing and actively contribute to containing the spread any further. Ample firms have reduced working hours as well !
