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, 7 cancelled sailings have been announced between weeks 4 and 7, out of a total of 488 scheduled sailings, representing a 1% cancellation rate.

The congestion at main ports and terminals in North America and Europe is persisting, generating bottlenecks on land and delays within the whole supply chain. Shortages of containers and supply chain disruptions dominate the volatility in spot rates.
Shippers are strained by the persistent equipment shortages, delays, often experiencing unreliable communication with their providers, while having to pay record high spot rates.
