The recent period can be described as "eventful autumn". Strikes and protests in Europe and the United States have occurred one after another, and the ports of many countries have been "suffocated" and containers have filled the docks. Waves of protests and strikes around the world have seriously disrupted the supply chain.

The protests continued

Involving sea, land and air transportation

UK: container port strike

In the latest news, the British trade union said that workers at felixto, Britain's largest container port, voted to support the strike action to resolve the wage dispute, and warned that the entire supply chain would be seriously damaged.

Germany: airline ground crew strike

It is reported that Lufthansa will cancel the "almost entire flight plan" of Frankfurt and Munich hub airports, and ground staff from check-in personnel to engineers, as well as truck drivers, are preparing to hold a one-day "warning strike" to fight for a substantial pay rise.

On the same day, the company canceled more than 1000 flights, and it is expected that many shipments will be delayed.

The cancellation of large-scale flights had a chain reaction to the cargo, because too much cargo was overstocked in the belly of the passenger plane, which led to the delay of aircraft loading and the decline of cargo volume.

In the Nordic ports on the other side of the earth, the capacity of container ships staying in the ports has also reached a record level, reaching 1.35 million TEUs on July 20. This figure is 16% higher than the average level in June.

Clarkson said that the congestion in Nordic ports was mainly due to the chain reaction of the interruption of land-based logistics (including transportation, railway network and barge services) and the feedback of the recent German port strike.

The analysis report of SDIC essence Futures Research Institute shows that the intensification of port congestion in Europe and the United States will once again restrict the current transportation capacity, affect the effective supply of transportation capacity in the market, superimpose the upcoming shipping peak season, and form a certain support for the freight rate in the short term.

West and East: congestion remains unabated

The congestion of Los Angeles and long beach ports has not been significantly alleviated.

According to the berthing data released by the maritime exchange of the Southern California shipping exchange, there are currently 81 ships waiting at the ports of Los Angeles and long beach.

Due to labor shortages and negotiations on workers' treatment, the railway service capacity has declined. At present, the waiting time of railway containers in Los Angeles port is about 7 days and that in Long Beach port is 9 days.

Earlier, truck drivers in the three Western ports of Los Angeles, long beach and Oakland went on strike to protest the California AB5 act.

Auckland port has resumed operations, but the strike has caused continuing supply chain problems.

As ships continue to turn to the eastern United States and the Mexican coast of the United States, port congestion along the eastern United States and the Mexican coast is also intensifying. Data show that in mid July, the East Coast Container Terminal reached a record 1.2 million TEUs, an increase of 30% over the average 950000 TEUs in June.

Europe: port congestion is still not optimistic

Recently, Maersk announced the latest situation of major European ports on its official website.

After the strike in mid July, the ports of Hamburg and Bremer were operating at full capacity, but the waiting time for ships in the ports was still extended. Due to technical problems, the railway was also hampered by road transportation.

The storage yard density in Rotterdam port is at a critical level, and customers are advised to move to the warehouse in Belgium.
