Based on the data of container import and export cargo throughput of major coastal ports in China from February 2020 to November 2021, the Difference-In-Difference (DID) model was used to explore the impact of the widespread prevalence of the Delta variant of COVID-19 on the import and export cargo volume of marine containers between China and Europe. Different from the general market judgment, this study shows that the new coronavirus epidemic has a significantly positive impact on the import and export volume of containers in Central Europe. In this regard, shipping companies, port operators and relevant government departments should respond to new changes in the impact of the epidemic reasonably and effectively.
