Shortage of Containers from the Far East

Shortage of Containers from the Far East

Please note that China & the Far East will be facing major container shortages in the next few days and coming weeks.

A shortage of containers in key locations, especially across Asia has been a major challenge during the latter part of 2020 and has continued into 2021.
The incident of the Ever Given on 23 March 2021 in the Suez Canal will exacerbate these shortages, as trade between East and West bound has been delayed.

Unfortunately, our clients can expect to experience booking confirmation delays due to container availability, limited space on vessels due to high demand and exceptionally high freight rates in the foreseeable future.
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact your Client Service Representative.
