Chinese businesses in the Balearics are being affected by disruption to supplies from China because of the Ukraine war. The freight train on Yiwu-Madrid Railway line, the longest railway in the world, has been suspended because of the war. The train carries thirty containers. In addition, there is the lockdown in Shanghai because of Covid. This has affected the shipping of goods from the port in Shanghai. Shipping companies have increased freight services from Asian ports to Spain, but this adds to cost, the price of fuel at present being another factor.
