   Ningbo-Zhoushan port in eastern China is back online, according to the state-owned company that manages the port.

   The terminal in Ningbo, which is south of Shanghai, had been closed since Aug. 11 after a dock worker tested positive for Covid-19. That prompted officials to quickly suspend the container collection service, citing a “system outage”.

   Operations in the port could take up to 60 days to return to normal when workers and maritime pilots return from quarantine. That means retailers around the world will face ongoing disruptions as they rush to stock up before the vital holiday shopping season.
