Our weekly Cancelled Sailings Tracker provides a snapshot of blank sailings announced by each Alliance versus the total number of scheduled sailings.
Further to the snapshot below, an annual subscription to the Cancelled Sailing Weekly Insight is now available to purchase via the online store.
Across the major trades: Transpacific, Transatlantic and Asia-North Europe & Med, 32 cancelled sailings have been announced between weeks 16 and 19, out of a total of 483 scheduled sailings, representing a 7% cancellation rate. Over the next 4 weeks, The Alliance has announced 15.5 cancellations, followed by Ocean Alliance and 2M with 7.5 and 4 cancellations, respectively.
There is little sign of positive change on the horizon, with shippers continuing to face supply chain disruption and equipment shortages in the coming weeks as carriers revise their port rotations to restore schedule integrity.
Inevitably, delivery delays will be seen in Europe and North America while extra surcharges, associated with shortage of equipment and premiums to secure space on the vessels are enforced by the Alliances.
