Global shipping industry. Where we are today. 

The movement of goods today is challenging for everyone.  We’ve discussed the consequences of the Pandemic  on world trade, and how the flow of goods has been majorly disrupted by the global container shortage crisis

The huge imbalance of container availability around the world has made shippers really look at their supply chains, routes to market and even the viability of the markets they sell to both now and in the future.  Coupled with the recent Suez Canal incident, there is even more complexity in the global shipping of goods. Even though there was no time to brace for the impact on the shipping industry, every business and every person is weathering the storm.
