Drewry updates on cancelled sailings

According to media reports, Drewry, the independent maritime research consultancy, says that across the major East-West headhaul container trades: Transpacific, Transatlantic and Asia-North Europe & Mediterranean - 53 cancelled sailings have been announced between weeks 46 (13 Nov-19 Nov) and week 50 (11 Dec-17 Dec), out of a total of 650 scheduled sailings, representing an 8% cancellation rate. During this period, 42% of the blank sailings will occur on the Transpacific Eastbound, 42% on Asia-North Europe and Med, and 17% on the Transatlantic Westbound trade.

With a comprehensive network of international container shipping services, including LCL and FCL import and export operations, this makes interesting reading for Davies Turner and we will remain vigilant to further cancellations as we work to secure space onboard for our clients' shipments.

The reports indicate that over the next five weeks, OCEAN Alliance have announced 22 cancellations, followed by THE Alliance and 2M with seven and four cancellations, respectively. During the same period, 20 blank sailings have been implemented in non-alliance services, says Drewry.
