Overall the global shipping and supply chain continues to present significant challenges and in many areas deteriorate. The Covid situation in China, and in particular Shanghai, has led to almost 500 bulk vessels and hundreds of additional container ships waiting in Chinese waters. In addition, Hapag steamship lines has suspended their West coast shipping operations leaving MSC as the only viable and significantly more expensive alternative. It is estimated that 10% of the world’s container fleet is currently waiting to enter ports.
We are currently considering our options for West Coast LCL operations and will update you as a matter of urgency.
