COVID-19 Restrictions in Vietnam Continue to Impact Apparel Production and Cause Port CongestionsEverstream Team
Once considered successful in containing the COVID-19 outbreak, Vietnam has struggled in recent weeks to manage a surging outbreak of Delta variant cases. The country’s Southern provinces, particularly Ho Chi Minh City, have been severely affected. Authorities have implemented a slew of stringent restrictions that have paralyzed the country’s supply chain. The difficulty in implementing the “3 tại chỗ” or “3 in one spot” and “một cung đường – 2 địa điểm” or “1 route 2 locations” regulations have resulted in many businesses temporarily ceasing operations. As a result, the Port of Cat Lai serving Ho Chi Minh City has reached maximum yard capacity due to the unavailability of businesses to receive imported cargo.
Any extension of the lockdown will likely have a negative impact on manufacturing and port operations in Vietnam. To understand the impact of the current regulations, read the report.
