Affected by the epidemic, many overseas air cargo and sea cargo routes have cancelled or reduced transportation services to China, according to Hu Rongyi, general manager of the company.

The company decided to resume its cargo truck service from Germany to Taicang, which is about 40 per cent cheaper than the cost of air freight. In order to provide support for more companies to lower logistics costs and resume production, Hu said the company has increased the frequency of trucks to four a week since the Spring Festival holiday.

So far, the company has transported over 50 batches of commodities worth CNY30 million (USD4.3 million).
