COVID outbreak threatens to delay ocean, air shipments in Australia
from American Shipper
New measures to contain a surge of COVID-19 cases in Victoria, Australia, have resulted in the continued closure of Qantas Airways' two freight terminals at Melbourne airport and concerns of logistics bottlenecks for the port and delivery businesses. Qantas Freight's Melbourne cargo warehouses will remain closed until at least midnight, the company said on its website. The airline's cargo arm hasn't provided a reason for the temporary shutdown that began two days ago, but indications are that it is responding to an infection in the workforce.
