CARGO ALERT – Space Issues from China to the U.S.
For the past few weeks there has been a growing backlog of shipments from China. This backlog extends to both Air and Ocean shipments. There are a number of factors causing this backlog. Some of the factors include; the U.S.- China trade dispute, severe weather and typhoons, and the upcoming Chinese holiday from October 1- October 7, 2018. Some carriers are over-booking by 40-50% causing many containers to be “rolled-over.”
We are working closely with our partners to coordinate as effectively as possible. We are committed to finding solutions for our clients.
To reduce the impact of this congestion please try to provide advance notice of your intended bookings. Advanced notice helps us secure the necessary space and reduce the impact of the current backlogs.
Thank you in advance for your patience and early booking assistance.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your Norman Krieger Representative for more information.
