Since the beginning of 2020, the entire world has been facing problems to continue operating the international shipping activities. All trade routes and ports were closed for months because of the coronavirus disease and the restrictions imposed by national lockdowns. When the ports finally opened there was a queue of ships waiting to dock and disembark the goods.
It was also necessary to face an increase in global consumption: People started to buy in bulk. It increased the demand for all international shipping services. That fact obligated us, and also every trading company in the world, to adjust to this new scenario and to face all these issues:
- A huge demand on a global scale;
- Congestions in ports;
- Container shortage;
- Demand fluctuations in many sectors.
- Obstruction of the Suez Canal;
We are still facing some of these problems but some of them are already resolved, like the obstruction of the Suez Canal. Companies and governments that were involved in this segment worked hard to solve these problems. And, they’re still taking all the necessary measures to avoid it from happening again.
As it’s possible to read on the CNN Business Website “the shipping crisis is getting worse” and probably is going to affect the retailers and holiday shoppers. According to the data from Drewry Shipping, in London based, to CNN Business, “the cost of shipping goods from China to North America and Europe has continued to climb over the past few months”.
All of that is because of the problem above mentioned, but especially because of port congestions. One of the most important ports on this international shipment route was facing problems with a huge queue of ships. It’s possible to notice that the port congestions are following a constant stream, when one port finally is decongested, another one faces the same problem.
It is known that all of these issues above mentioned are affecting businesses and raising prices. Another situation is that container freight rates have surged and international shipping is spending more time than ever, all these reasons raise the overall international shipping prices. It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but in the best-case scenario, international shipping will start to return to normal at the beginning of 2022.
