A trucker strike at the Port of Ningbo has escalated to near riotous conditions, warranting police involvement after picketing drivers became violent, reportedly.

Striking truckers have been detained and arrested, according to the Journal of Commerce. Operations at the port have been severely impacted. We cannot confirm if the protests are ongoing at this point. Shippers with freight coming in or out of the port should expect delays through the next few days, regardless of whether protests continue.
