Shanghai restrictions on truck emissions // increase of trucking charges

With effect of 1 July, the Shanghai government has announced that it will not allow trucks which are not meeting the G3 emission standard to drive inside the S20 (outer ring road).

Dear All,

please note that with effect of 1 July, the Shanghai government has announced that it will not allow trucks which are not meeting the G3 emission standard to drive inside the S20 (outer ring road).

This will effect quite a number of trucks and we will foresee a shortage of trucking capacity and consequently we anticipate an increase of trucking costs of about 10%.

For reference, please find the link to the Shanghai government's announcement which is unfortunately only available in Chinese:
