freight market update 2024 WEEK 02 BUILD RESILIENCE A range of options are available for businesses to mitigate disruptions and build resilience within their supply chain. Green Worldwide recommends: Partnering with a freight forwarder that will leverage its network to keep your freight moving. Using warehousing facilities to maintain inventory close to key markets. Implementing visibility tools that provide real-time tracking systems to enhance efficiencies. GLOBAL UPDATES Red Sea / Suez Canal - Despite the presence the multinational Operation Prosperity Guardian deterrent, attacks on commercial vessels transiting the Red Sea continue. Major ocean carriers continue to take the longer route around the Cape of Good Hope causing delivery delays, tight capacity, and rate increases. Panama Canal - All carriers operating on the Asia-Transpacific lanes diverted their vessels back into the queue awaiting transit through the Panama Canal or travel longer distances to transit around the Cape of Good Hope leading to an increase in canceled sailings and rate increases. Supply chain resilience refers to the ability of a supply chain to adapt, recover, and maintain continuous operations when disrupting events such as natural disasters, armed conflicts, labor shortages, or equipment scarcity occur.

capacity lost to blank sailing 2024 WEEK 02 TRANSPACIFIC TO USA Port omission and blank sailing are both terms that refer to shipping schedule exceptions. Schedule exceptions take place when a ship is unable to keep to its original schedule due to unforeseen occurrences, such as poor weather, port congestion, and technical issues. BLANK SAILING Although ocean line service operators may decide to “blank” a particular port or region, when a partner in a Vessel Sharing Agreement announces a blank sailing, typically they are referring to an entire voyage being canceled. When this occurs, the voyage number that was published in the LTS or Coastal Schedule (CS) is preserved for internal cost allocation and reporting. All port calls that were planned on the journey are “blanked”. Contact Green freight experts atgreenworldwide.com
