UPDATE - Blanking Advisory

UPDATE as of 19th September

Further to our notification earlier this month, we have been advised that a number of shipping lines have announced further blank sailings and downsizing of capacity in September / October / November due to low market demand.

The below details the capacity withdrawn from the market across the various carrier alliances.

Recent “Blank Sailing Programmes“, whilst disruptive, have had little impact on the services that Woodland offer due to our wide range of contract agreements with carriers and space protection programmes.

In order for us to continue to minimise potential impact to our customers' supply chain through working with our partners on making structural changes or securing alternative routing where required, we encourage all customers to book well in advance of sailings to secure space.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update you where necessary.

If you need any further immediate information, please do not hesitate to contact your Woodland office who will be able to update you.

We thank you for your continued support.
