Sea freight volumes from Asia have been improving steadily since the COVID-19 lockdowns of April and May, confounding shipping lines that have been blanking sailings in the expectation of low demand from battered economies and mostly in recession.

Equipment availability and vessel space from China’s main ports continues to be extremely challenging for UK & USA importers.

With our nPRIORITY service shippers get priority on equipment and priority vessel space for those MUST ship orders.

As we move deeper into the traditional peak shipping season, fears of cargo rollings will increase as volume exceeds available capacity, even with carriers reinstating blanked sailings and supplying extra loaders to pick up containers bumped off overbooked vessels.

Overall the July global container demand had fully recovered to the level seen in 2019 and strong rates in the trade suggest that demand growth is continuing.

We have block space and price agreements in place to protect our customers and NGL in Asia work closely with all the shipping lines and alliances to manage our bookings in line with optimum space availability.

But we recognise the need for some shipments and supply chains to have guarantees, reliability and priority of service, when urgency is simply too-pressing for standard sea freight.
