Shortages of Equipment - Schedule Disruption/Delays
We are still seeing shortages of equipment and space issues throughout NZ, USA, Europe, and Asia (Especially Los Angeles, UK, Germany, Turkey, Thailand & Japan, with the current wait on bookings around 1 month)
To add, Germany & mid-west USA are also experiencing bad weather/heavy snow which in turn is causing delays on truck/rail services.
With most transhipment ports in Asia (eg: Singapore/Port Klang) we are seeing heavy delays in connecting vessels into Australia with containers being rolled regularly.
As this is an industry-wide issue with many ports around the World affected, we seek your understanding as we work relentlessly to meet your shipping needs.
Please give plenty of notice for all new bookings as pre-booking space in advance is vital
