Weekly Update Week 17: April 25th-29th

Operations Update:

Northern Europe – Shipping Update

Volume from Northern Europe to North America Increased by 11.4% Y/Y in February, during this period only 14.7% of vessels were on time.  The outlook is one of continuing full vessels and potentially worsening schedules as we approach the summer peak.  We encourage our customers to book as early as possible and recommend allowing an extra 6 – 8 weeks.


Reminder West Coast – Change in LCL Service

We wanted to remind you of an important change to our West Coast LCL shipments.  For the time being, we have decided to suspend our Ocean West Coast shipments and replace the service by Ocean Shipments to the East Coast and then truck the shipments to the West Coast. Elenteny will manage the refrigerated trucking from Coast to Coast and wines will also be available for pick up from Sidekick warehouse. Full details of the change may be found here.
