Seafreight:

Space, blank sailings and allocations to Far east

Airfreight:

Asia: With the exception of China and HK. Most of the counties have restricted the passenger service or even CAO. Rates

are raising day by day.

North America: 90% of all air-cargo loads were on passenger service. This service has been reduced by 90%. We can work

with CAO service which is currently full and overrated. This situation will get worse as the days goes by.

South America: Most of the airlines stopped operating. Also due to the traditional low CAO service demand in this area, the

offer of this service is very low. The situation is similar to the US or even worse.

Details in case of major issues

MAD Airport: Two out of three terminals closed due to low demand.

BCN Airport: Two out of three terminals closed due to low demand

Other comments

Please be advised that ONLY essential goods will be permitted in the country during the lock down period. Starting on

March 31st up to April 13th. Subject to be extended

Agreements and contract rates are not valid anymore. Every request should be treated as spot and the validity of the same

is very short.

Cargo terminals: From being operative 24/365. They are now only operative from 8am to 17h pm.

Please be advised that Rohlig Melbourne remains fully operational and ger familiar with our contingency plan (below and attached).

What is Röhlig Melbourne doing to minimise the risk of an outbreak during the pandemic?

- In February Röhlig released our business Pandemic Plan globally, we adapted this locally in March in line with DHHS guidelines, reducing risk to our staff and business

- Operating safely, keeping our clients and staff away from risk is our number one priority as a business. Röhlig has been very successful, we have delivered high business continuity during this period of uncertainty and have anticipated changes well, adapting quickly to DHHS instructions.

- On Monday, the 20th July 2020 we have implemented a zero-contact policy for drivers on-site implementing time slots, we have made masks accessible for all our staff,

we will continue to evolve to a rapidly changing environment.

Does Röhlig have a plan on how to operate under stage 4?

- There is currently no government framework for what a Stage 4 might look like in Victoria. However, we do have a regional blueprint in NZ, where we managed to demonstrate that we could provide exceptionally high 3PL operations and freight forwarding business continuity under stage 4 shut down.

- Being an exempt industry we are well-positioned to handle pick and pack operations at short notice, recent client closures in the past weeks due to Victoria outbreaks have provided us some invaluable insights of what needs to happen in these scenarios - We Can Support Clients Quickly!

What are some examples of what Rohlig has offered in support to clients during a lockdown or outbreak?

Option A - Arrange deliveries to your site as normal.

Option B - Arrange to store AIR/LCL product in our facility until you are able to receive.

Option C - Arrange FCL's back to yard and hold in yard until you are able to receive. (subject to carrier surcharges such as detention)

Option D- Arrange FCL devanning at our yard, dehire container and store cargo in our facility until you are able to receive.

Option E - Undertake 3PL operations in our facility (with pre-engagement and scope of work)

Röhlig is happy to support your business, help prepare your contingency arrangements, and provide ancillary costs associated with these situations. Feel free to speak with a representative of Rohlig for further information, we can tailor solutions to meet your individual requirements.

Contact us on AU.RC.MEL.SALES@rohlig.com for further information.

SEA - Carrier schedule reliability on TPEB trade down to low 30%. Individual departures may get pushed out by more than one week or certain origin ports are getting omitted.

Details in case of major issues

AIR - Waiting times at airports in general 6-8 hours ORD, LAX, JFK. Break down pallets can take 2+ days on certain airlines depending on volumes.

SEA - Significant congestion and delays in all major sea ports, leading to extended dwell times at the ports.

Other comments

CUSTOMS - We are seeing delays on processing exams and holds due to congestion at the ports and COVID related staffing issues by US Customs, FDA, and USDA.

LAND - Transit times are extremely delayed due to COVID related issues. It is recommended to add 1-2 days of transit on any ETAs as the carriers are extremely backed up.

WAREHOUSE - Space in warehouses are still extremely tight in the U.S. especially in Los Angeles and New York but we do see it starting to open slightly. We are going to continue to monitor over the coming weeks.

Critical destinations/tradelanes & impact on rates

since there no PAX flights at all, only freighters are working (or PAX aircrafts carrying just cargo), there is a shortage in space and rates have gone up dramatically to all destinations.

Details in case of major issues

No shutdown or major limitations on the airport (TLV) and the seaports (Ashdod, Haifa).

The problem is with the lack of flights and cancellations of shipping lines voyages.

Other comments

There are restrictions on number of workers per office so the business community is working no more than 50% of its capability.

Seafreight: The Jordan Maritime Authority instructed ship agents to arrange to fumigate all vessels entering regional waters.

Airfreight: AMM Airport stopped allowing civilian passengers to fly in or out of the country starting yesterday. Cargo is still allowed to enter and exit the country. However, the ban on passengers created a severe drop in available cargo capacity. Turkish Airlines are now operating 1-2 freighters per week. Cargolux is operating 2. Royal Jordanian started operating new freighter services, as well as passenger aircrafts that are only carrying cargo.

Customs: Jordan Customs will have 50% of their officers operate remotely
