Amid recurrent epidemics and increasing supply chain pressure, the entire overseas transportation industry is not having easy days, especially for foreign trade companies. The price of ocean freight has increased by 5-6 times compared with before the epidemic, director of Huahong Holding Group Gong Pinzhong said.
