Asia Freight Update - Delays
Decreased schedule reliability leads to further ocean freight delays
Following decreasing schedule integrity over recent months, it is currently at an all time low with ETA’s on shipping line websites not reflecting timings accurately due to severe delays at feeder ports in Europe as well as at origin in China where we are seeing delays between 10-14 days in vessels departing China Main Ports (CMP) to Europe.
In parallel, Antwerp port is currently experiencing delays of up to 4 weeks, impacting all ocean and feeder vessels and priority given to cargo that has been sitting longest, with news of the same only having been shared last week.
The ocean freight industry is experiencing significant volatility with shipping lines struggling to advise as new updates come through and having to do manual checks on shipments with their counterparts offices in transhipment ports to reactively advise all parties of the supply chain ecosystem.
We will continue to push for updates and work on possible alternative solutions to make sure you receive your shipments as soon as possible.
