Following updates from carriers and our freight and shipping partners in China, we would like to advise our clients on the current Far East market situation.
Due to the current global crisis caused by Covid-19, shipping lines have vastly reduced capacity and planned a number of void and blank sailings in order to mitigate the impact of the pandemic.
Compounding this problem is an increased demand in the market to ship goods, as opposed to the levels in April which were much lower. This does, unfortunately, mean that securing space with shipping lines is becoming increasingly difficult.
However, please rest assured that our import team will continue to provide a multitude of options for any bookings that you may have to make, but we do ask for your understanding and patience as this is a problem across all carriers.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients for their support throughout these most uncertain times and send our best wishes to you and your loved ones during the current crisis.
