Market Update

On the transatlantic trade, the average delay is now 10 days, due to this situation, we see continuous blank sailings so
that the boats should be able to get more right in their sailing schedule.

This raising the prices in both the short and long term because demand is higher than capacity.

The shipping companies are raising their Peak Season Surcharges to both North America and South America.

Globally, schedule reliability has hit its previous lowest listing by 35% in February, the average delay is 6.75 days.

The Oceania trade is very fully booked the rest of Q2.

Congestion and delays in US & European ports due to bad weather, draft restrictions, Cov-19 related labor shortage and trucker shortage in US/CA.

Booking stops by Carriers for Sailings in April & May, due to heavy backlog of bookings.

Severe Equipment shortage in Europe (deteriorating due to Suez Canal incidence)

Please ensure to book well in advance 4-5 weeks.




Booking Stop

Delayed, or missed, berthing windows in our larger continental ports will result in canceled departures in the coming weeks. To what extent sailing schedules will be affected is currently difficult to predict. Ever Given’s grounding and subsequent blockage of the Suez Canal will most likely post significant effects in the coming weeks.

Several shipping lines have also informed of a temporary stoppage, concerning release of empty containers for transport bookings, where the route through the Suez Canal is normally utilized. We maintain a close contact with all our suppliers and will revert with additional information as the extent of the delays becomes clearer.

Unfortunately, the situation is beyond our control and any extra costs incurred, will not be absorbed by NAC. We work diligently to make the impact as small as possible and we will contact affected customers on shipment level. If you have any questions, please contact your local NAC representatives, or your local NAC office.

With kind regards
