The government has tightened quarantine arrangements for cabin crew, which has greatly affected air cargo.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor has warned that the impact will gradually emerge, among which electronic products are expected to bear the brunt of the impact, with price increases and shortages at any time.

Fang Baoqiao, Honorary President of the Information Technology Chamber of Commerce, predicts that the next month will be the most severe, including mobile phones, computers, and automobiles. Because of the high demand for mobile phones and the difficulty of replenishment, it is believed that the supply will be in short supply.


Fang Baoqiao described that Hong Kong is currently facing the most severe situation in the two years of fighting the epidemic. "Before, people were not allowed to go out, and even the entry and exit of goods was affected according to family ties." Although this wave of epidemics may ease before the Lunar New Year, However, it is difficult to predict when air freight will fully return to normal. The supply chain has been affected for nearly a month, and it is believed that it will be difficult for all kinds of goods to recover in a short time.

Fang Baoqiao pointed out that the tight air transport may affect electronic products such as mobile phones and computers.

He took the iPhone as an example. In addition to the shortage of freight in Hong Kong, it is also affected by production in the Mainland and the supply and transportation of raw materials in Taiwan. In addition to the mobile phone itself, the supply of various accessories will also be affected. Samsung mobile phones are produced in Vietnam and will also be affected by logistics and transportation. As a result, he expects that the iPhone and other mobile phone products may have the opportunity to increase the price by 10% to 20% due to the shortage of supply.

The global chip supply continues to be tight. Fang Baoqiao pointed out that manufacturers will give priority to manufacturing high-end mobile phones, and the production of some low- and medium-priced mobile phones will be reduced, and the supply of new products will naturally be less. ”, may face pressure to increase prices.

In recent years, the production of private cars has also required the use of chips. Fang Baoqiao, for example, uses chips for the entertainment system in the car, including chips and various electronic components, which will affect the production and supply of automobiles. It is a must-have product, but if it is out of stock for a long time, it will affect life.”

He suggested that Cathay Pacific hire more pilots to increase the service capacity of cargo aircraft, so as to avoid the occurrence of a "vacuum period" in freight transport, which would affect the daily life of the public.
