The disaster in Japan is also cause for concern for China's logistics industry. International transport operators are preparing to be inundated with demand to move quake relief and reconstruction materials.

Sanho Logistics is a Shanghai-based logistics operator, with its main business in the south of Japan. Although the company's clients were largely unhurt in the disaster, its business has been indirectly impact.

Feng Ying, Shanghai Sanho Logistics said "The cargo stockpiled in North Japan are being moved southward. That will put much pressure on operators in the South. That may lead to delays in their transportation to China."

Now transportation operators are putting their weight behind transporting post-quake materials.

Shanghai is a major port for China's trade with Japan. The operator of the port is closely watching shipping companies operating on Japanese routes.

It's also well-prepared for the expected transportation demand for the country's post-quake reconstruction efforts.

Yan Jun, Deputy Director of Shanghai Int'l Port (Group) said "We will give priority to arranging ships for material needed for disaster relief and reconstruction. In the meantime, we will minimize these ships' stay at the port, so the relief material can reach their destinations sooner."

The port operator also says it will offer as much convenience as possible to Japan-bound trade ships.
