Latest news regarding the situation in China - the country has been closed during the week in accordance with the Chinese authorities' extended New Year celebration. Our agents have worked from home so the situation has been under control. On Monday, most people return to their workplaces with some exceptions. We have received indications that there may be problems with domestic transport in China, as drivers who have been in other provinces during this time and who are now returning home, are quarantined 14 days before being allowed to return to work. If you have any questions or questions, just contact us

We just want to remind you that as of January 2020 we have new environmental requirements that the shipping lines will implement. Sulfur emissions must be heavily reduced by switching to better, but more expensive fuel types. The shipping lines have chosen to either include the cost in the sea freight or create a new fuel cost which in February is between USD 115-140 / teu. If you have any questions about this, just contact us.

Due to the current situation in China, the Chinese authorities have decided to extend the Chinese New Year celebration by one week. For the time being, most workplaces will resume work on February 10th, the Hubei Province will be closed for yet another week, until February 14th. At present, the activites in the Chinese ports are running as usual and our Chinese agents are working from home. Next week's departures will hopefully leave as planned.

Dear customer,

Time for holidays: Christmas and New Year!

In 2020 new environmental requirements concerning the shipping industry will be implemented in January: IMO2020. Emissions will be reduced by 80% by changing to better, but more expensive fuel types. The costs will vary depending on vessel size, region, fuel cost and how well-prepared shipping lines are regarding environmental requirements. As more parties will switch to the approved fuel types, the total price of the sea freight is likely to increase. We will most likely see new fuel supplements as new costs as usual will hit the end customers. The shipping lines will probably end up at similar levels after some time. The price structure for January is yet to be seen.

Everyone at Scanlink Transport wants to take the opportunity to wish you a really Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The office is open 8 am - 5 pm all weekdays during the holidays in order to take care of your transport.
