PEKING/MOSCOW. Freight traffic between Russia and China by train and container ships is usually no problem. Deliveries by truck, however, are difficult. Among others, Chinese pine nut traders are feeling the effects of this.

No deliveries before May

Truck drivers would have to spend at least four weeks in quarantine to make a tour between China and Russia. Hardly anyone is willing to do this, and it is also an increased cost factor for the transport companies. As a result, Chinese pine nut traders are currently waiting in vain for commodities from Russia. The stocks of many factories have already been used up a few weeks ago. Chinese exporters therefore do not expect to be able to ship new goods before May/June at the earliest.
