YES and not ONLY e-commerce!
But it's much more complicated than that. Some of you may know that an entire city's air and rail transport infrastructure was completely shut down, meaning no one could get in or out of the city.
So, what would that look like if the same thing happened in Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Yiwu, some of the busiest manufacturing hubs in China and where most products are shipped from?
Remember, all suppliers and manufacturers will already be backlogged trying to process millions of orders which were placed before and over CNY. We are talking about over 1 month of orders flooding hubs.
Everyone will be STACKED!!
There will no doubt be congestion, whether you use ePacket or another service, expect above average transit times and this isn't even taking the Corona virus into consideration.
Everyone is hoping that it can be contained and kept under control, but it's early days and the signs aren't looking very good right now.
Worst case scenario, months and months of delays on your orders.
Let's not panic just yet though, after all, the Chinese government is building a brand new hospital in just 6 days in an effort to contain the virus......6 DAYS! Something only China can do surely!
So watch this space, updates as they happen!
