Cancelled Sailings By Ocean Carriers a Sign of Continued Import Volume Reductions in U.S.
April 25, 2020
As reported in a recent edition of American Shipper, ocean carriers are continuing to “blank” (cancel) sailings at a steady clip and cancelled sailings mean significantly lower cargo volumes destined for U.S. ports. With the COVID19 crisis still causing challenges for U.S. importers and consumers the impact is likely not to improve for several months. Importers who are booking shipments should be prepared for containers being “rolled” (delayed) as ship cancellations impact the carriers’ schedules.
