Market Information

The trucking situation in the U.S. continues to deteriorate. Several cities are heavily impacted by tight capacity leading to delays, chassis shortages and higher trucking prices that vary from region to region.
China’s busiest time of year is fast approaching. Chinese New Year (CNY) is celebrated nationwide meaning all businesses around the country will close, including all factories. During this time all workers will travel across the country to return to their families and celebrate the New Year, with all manufacturing shutting down for the duration.
To cope with the pre-CNY volume surge, some carriers have announced rate increase and are applying peak season surcharge. Westbound blank sailings will be implemented by carriers starting from week 7 to 10 (depending on trade lanes) to adjust capacity for the reduced demand.
There is currently an escalating challenge of trucking capacity in key U.S. locations which has impacted delivery schedules leading to delays and to unanticipated additional cost.
