Delays and Capacity Constraints are New Normal in Container Shipping
New data shows that the strains on global container shipping are continuing with shippers and carriers faced with ongoing delays, congestion, and capacity shortages. With shippers entering their second year of pandemic-induced volatility, project44, a tracking and analysis platform for shippers and logistics service providers, predicts that volatility and under capacity are becoming the new normal for the container shipping industry.
The number of containers being delays or missing their booking, known as the rollover rate, continues to be on the rise according to project44. During April, they report that on average four out of every ten containers (39 percent) missed their scheduled sailing. Some major carriers and ports, however, reported rollover rates over 50 percent.
