Ocean Container Transit Delay – NOTIFICATION
There is currently a worldwide imbalance in container distribution that is causing delays in almost every country. The cause is due to multiple situations all accumulating at the same time, from:
- USA trade issues with China.
- European trade imbalances with China
- Northern African trade imbalances with China
- Reduced Vessels in service due to COVID work precautions
- Ocean Lines changing carrier schedules and capacity levels
- Major Port handling issues at primary container transit hubs
- Chassis & trailer equipment shortages due to ports slowdowns
- Inconsistent port regulations & procedures
The result is the same, there will be delays to ocean container shipments for the foreseeable future. You can expect to see 4-8 week delay during most of 2021.
