Typhoon Lekima causes service disruptions in East Asia

Super typhoon Lekima has brought major impact to the northern part of Taiwan and the eastern coast of China since August 9, local time.

Lekima made landfall near Shanghai in the early morning on August 10. Over the weekend, the storm brought heavy downpours, strong winds, flooding and landslides to coastal areas of seven provinces in China from Fujian to Jiangsu, including Shanghai city.

While some of the affected areas are still suffering from heavy rains and flooding, land transportation is disrupted. At the same time, seaport operations are disrupted and hundreds of flights are postponed or cancelled. Please expect shipment delays due to the adverse weather conditions.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. If you have any questions, please contact your local DACHSER representatives.
