Long-haul container shipping capacity grows at expense of regional lanes

With a comprehensive portfolio of ocean freight forwarding services around the globe, Davies Turner notes that according to a report on the Container News website, Intra-Europe, intra-Asia and container services to Africa have taken a beating as liner operators diverted vessels to the more lucrative Asia-Europe and Transpacific lanes over the past year.

Alphaliner’s latest report, released on 24 August, stated that as of 1 August, intra-Europe capacity had declined by 14% year-on-year. The contraction for intra-Asia and African services was 10% and 4%, respectively.

Alphaliner noted that while in August 2021, the reduction in intra-Europe capacity was just 5%, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 caused more capacity to be withdrawn, as many regular services to/from Russia were suspended.
