With the global supply chain already affected by the epidemic, the Suez Canal, which accounts for about 12% of Global trade, has been interrupted and blocked, which has further increased the pressure on the global supply chain.
The chain reaction of Suez Canal to the global supply chain is just beginning to appear, but the trouble for foreign trade freight forwarders has happened.
The demand for us line seats is tight until the end of April, and the demand for Ramadan + Easter is surging
In recent months, there are more and more container ships berthing in Los Angeles and long beach waiting for unloading. A large number of ships are unable to berth and operate, and the shipping time is becoming more and more uncertain.
The situation of us line shipping is very tense now. Almost all the direct flights to New York have exploded, and the tight shipping space has been arranged until the end of April.
It is reported that one container is hard to get for Meissen express, which has exceeded the peak period at the end of last year; the shipping space of Yixing Express has become extremely tight due to Meissen's lack of containers; the shipping schedule of general cargo has changed too much, and the port of destination has been unable to berth for operation, which makes the shipping time more uncertain.

In addition, when Ramadan meets Easter, the demand for shopping is surging, and the popularity of ports can be imagined. At present, many ports in the world have a peak period of arrival.
"The delay in Christmas, the data trend strongly suggests that imports throughout Easter will be similarly affected." Said William George, an analyst at importgenius.
According to trade data, Easter imports have exceeded the historical level. Gene seroka, executive director of the port of Los Angeles, said recently: "the ratio of import and export containers has reached 4:1, which is one of the highest records in the history of the port of Los Angeles." Congestion and delays at the port continue.
Another research report also pointed out that the current U.S. retail inventory is still at a low level, and the relative inventory level has been the lowest in 28 years. This means that there will be a continuous flow of goods to the United States.
Land logistics also has problems. Kip louttit, chief executive of the marine exchange of Southern California, said that 8000 trucks are needed to tow the cargo of a cargo ship out of the port, but if a ship is to be unloaded, there are not enough trucks available and the freight railway traffic is also affected.
Finally, in terms of customs clearance, the inspection rate of the west coast is high. Please pay attention to the completeness of the goods list. In addition, the CPSC of the United States Consumer Product Safety Association began to reform from 2021 / 03 / 22. If there are relevant products, please prepare relevant documents in advance, such as CPC test report, certification, etc., for the customs examination at the port of destination.
The product names are as follows: Children's products (related toys, clothing, decoration, furniture, etc.), fireworks, fluids, prefabricated walls, mattresses, bicycle helmets, engines, batteries, hair dryers, charging lines, bicycles, baby carriages, festival lights, igniters, carpets, furnaces, scarves, ties, other potentially flammable adult clothing accessories, etc.
Ships gathered, port congestion and delay, and many European countries burst their warehouses seriously
Recently, the logistics situation in Europe is not optimistic. The multiple attacks of epidemic, congestion, Easter and strike have made Europe face the challenge of large-scale warehouse explosion. The first journey is congested and the last journey is urgent. The timeliness in the short term has been seriously affected.
After the Suez Canal Crisis, European ports will face a key risk in the next few weeks or months: "ship aggregation", that is, ships deviate from the scheduled arrival plan, which will eventually lead to aggregation and congestion.
The ship may face several weeks of land operation interruption, while the shipper will face further import delay and temporary export stagnation. In addition, several shipping companies have suspended the booking of some ports on the red sea route.
At the same time, the delay and uncertainty of future shipping schedule have prompted the carrier to offer some suggestions to Asian exporters to cancel the voyage from mid April to mid May.
Recently, Europe has faced a large-scale burst of positions, and the situation of delay at the end of Europe is not optimistic. In the face of such a serious situation, many freight forwarders have announced: "it is now decided to suspend the receipt of European shipping for two weeks. When the situation eases, they will also inform the recovery time."
Recently, a freight forwarder issued an urgent notice: due to the German GLS warehouse burst, Amazon Nuremberg warehouse burst is serious, German UPS / DPD / GLS are affected by Amazon warehouse burst, unable to recover in a short time, and immediately ushered in Easter, GLS unloading and delivery will be delayed in the near future, the specific time and other foreign notices.
Dtm2, wro5, ktw1 and wro1 warehouses in Germany are difficult to book; bhx4 warehouses in the UK are slow to put on shelves, and lba2 warehouses are also rejected.
There are tens of thousands of Amazon packages piled up in the British DPD warehouse, which can not be delivered, and hundreds of trucks are overstocked. At present, DPD has suspended the pick-up service in the UK.
In addition, Belgium, the Netherlands and other places also suffered from serious warehouse explosion, capacity shortage and time delay, which may need to wait until after Easter to gradually recover.
At present, all the warehouses of Amazon are delayed until April. Now the staff of Amazon is short of manpower, and the goods will be delayed after they are delivered to the warehouse.
The main reason for the large-scale explosion is the outbreak of the third wave of epidemic in Europe. Recently, the third wave of epidemic situation in Europe has spread, and many countries, such as France, Britain, Germany and Italy, have implemented the blockade again.
Another reason is that: Overseas Easter holiday time is April 2-5, local manpower shortage, back-end tallying customs clearance, delivery, etc. will be delayed, the seller needs to communicate with users.
In the face of the global supply chain is not smooth, here to remind, there are shipping plans in the near future, please make shipping as soon as possible, so as not to affect shipping!
