Imported pork leaving Shanghai for Wuhan
A total of 2,000 tons of frozen pork imported for Wuhan is being sent from Shanghai Yangshan Port.
Two of five batches, 590 tons in total, have left the port since February 10.

SIPG, the company in charge of delivery, said it takes 18 hours for the containers of pork to reach Wuhan.
The harbor and waterway police of Shanghai Public Security Bureau guarded the goods throughout loading, transfer and clearance at the customs.
