Diesel shortage hits parts of China
A diesel fuel shortage in two mainland China provinces is hitting the trucking industry there, according to a notice Monday from Hellmann Logistics.
The shortage is acute in some areas of Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces, according to the note.
'Some gas stations have no diesel fuel and some allow (a maximum of 200 liters) to trucks five tons and above,' Hellmann said. 'We hope this situation will not last long, but for this week the chance is that the total transit time (especially for shipments with long inland transportation involved) could be affected.'
