The supply chain around the world continues to face problems. The high demand from consumers, the closure of several factories, but also the restrictions due to the pandemic, all these together have hindered the port activities for months. The result is fewer shipping containers.

The accident with the Ever Given on the Suez Canal further aggravated the situation.

In terms of port operation, many are already operating at full capacity but port storage fees have increased, somewhat reducing the costs of some ports.

In particular, the port of Hong Kong has an expectation of up to 67%, but the port of YanTian has progressed without delays, and the ports of Oakland, Savannah, Seattle and Vancouver have seen productivity rise. Congestion and delays face ports in Liverpool, Rotterdam and Hamburg.
