Many waiting ships are mega-vessels navigating the Asia-Euro route, making multiple stops in European ports. With even more cargo waiting at Chinese ports for vessels to transport it to those European markets, the delays are equally problematic in the Euro-Asia direction. Given the number of vessels that are affected, carriers’ networks could be disrupted for weeks and months.

More than ever, visibility into floating inventory is critical. The ability to divert cargo, manage expectations, and make adjustments in real-time is imperative for shippers.

“Once the log-jam is broken, major ports in Rotterdam, Antwerp, and Hamburg will be swamped,” said Jett McCandless, CEO of project44. “That congestion will have rolling effects further down the supply chain for months to come, exacerbating an already problematic  situation at major European ports. With inventories dropping as a result, unfortunately that means the costs will be passed on to the consumer.”
