Port Congestion in Far East

 Due to Blank sailings imposed by all the SSLs and due to Typhoons in China, South Korea, Japan there is Port Congestion in all the major ports. The sailings have been affected and there is a delay of 7 days specially at Ningbo Port. As the vessels call all major ports in China before leaving for any destination, congestion at one port affects all other ports as well. 

Peak Season may extend through November

 Logistics experts forecast that US imports will remain at peak levels at least through November, mainly due to the steady flow of personal protective equipment (PPE) and the sharp incline of e-commerce. While many forecasted that the peak season would run through September, e-commerce patterns are playing a huge role in the surge in imports as many shoppers favor online purchases due to COVID-19. 

Experts say that consumers are shopping for more things online than they would previously, and this growth is contributing to the change in peak-season patterns for the trans-Pacific eastbound trade. Additionally, some large retailers are still replenishing inventory that was exhausted after the US reopened non-essential businesses from lockdown.  The volume of PPE purchases has stayed elevated due to federal and local governmental purchasing the products.

Equipment Shortages in Asia

 Asia volumes continue to be elevated from Southeast Asia, specially Vietnam. Two of the busiest trade lanes from Asia for vessel capacity are currently Yantian, China and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam to Los Angeles and to Long Beach. As a result, equipment continues to be tight in these areas, with 40-foot high cube containers scarce, and some carriers recommending booking only 40-foot containers, as that is all that is available. The current surge in imports has already pushed spot rates to record highs, with last week of September’s rate from Asia-US West Coast up 125% over the same week in 2019 and the Asia-East Coast rate up 56% year over year.
