GLOBAL SHIPPING ALERT
Undoubtedly you will have noticed via the news networks the escalating security threats in the Red Sea. Here at AWL, we are keeping a very close eye on the situation which continues to develop by the day. It has been noted by us that most if not all, large industry ocean carriers to include Hapag Lloyd, Maersk, CMA & MSC have started to suspend operations through the Red Sea which is the major transit route from the Far East to Europe and redirecting their vessels via the Cape of Good Hope. This is obviously a sensible thing to do amid the safety concerns considering the attacks from the Houthi rebels in the Red Sea on their vessels, but it is not without consequence to global trade itself.
Re-routing vessels around the Cape is expected to add at least 10 days to the Westbound voyage time of the Asia-North Europe loop. This change will undoubtedly have its challenges with a spike in freight rates already starting to show along with added war risk surcharges to their invoices. Some industry experts are warning depending on the scale and duration of this disruption, ocean freight rates could increase by anything from 75 / 100% which we sincerely hope not to be the case but, we need for you to be aware.
Obviously, this is entirely out of AWL’s control, but we are committed to actively monitoring the situation and ensure we provide updates & adaptability to your supply chain when and where possible.
If you have any questions or concerns about your shipments, please reach out to us where we are on hand to provide you with an update.
