Port congestion remains, China’s log imports are blocked, and U.S. retail sales are nearly collapsed
With the recovery of the epidemic, the global shipping demand is rising, and the global shipping problem comes one after another. Recently, with the sharp rise in demand brought by the consumption season brought by Christmas, retailers stepped up hoarding inventory before the festival, further putting pressure on the already insufficient global shipping market.
“Supply chain nightmare”, some mainstream Western media recently described port congestion, labor shortage, rising prices and other problems; At Rotterdam port in the Netherlands, some ships need to wait 200 hours to unload. At felixto port in the UK, a batch of cargo ships full of Christmas gifts have to go to other places because they can’t unload. Savannah port, the third largest container port in the United States, has a serious cargo accumulation. 80000 containers are overstocked at Savannah port in Georgia, 50% more than before, Nearly 700 of these containers have been stranded in the port for a month.
