In addition to the continued backlog of ports in Western America, Europe and other regions, there are also other "plugs" pouring into the main artery of the shipping industry——

◇ The Delta variant virus destroys the order of Southeast Asian ports, and the ports are almost "suffocated";
◇ Ports on the west coast of the United States are "unhealed for a long time", and congestion is getting worse;
◇ China's Shanghai Port and Zhoushan Port were once closed under the influence of Typhoon "Fireworks";
◇ Major container ports such as Cape Town and Durban in South Africa were hit by cyber attacks and fell into chaos;

Seaexplore, a container transportation platform created by logistics giant Kuehne+Nagel, shows that at present, more than 120 ports on all continents of the world are collectively stuck in congestion, and more than 310 ships of major shipping companies are hovering outside these ports waiting to enter the port.

It can be seen from the picture that the port is densely congested.
Port of Southern California, U.S.——

33 ships hovering anxiously outside the port

In Southern California, the port authorities said that the shipping crisis will not disappear, but will intensify, because currently 33 cargo ships are floating off the coast of Los Angeles, waiting for a long call.

The Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach account for about one-third of the U.S. imports. These ports are the main source of imports from China and have been heavily congested for months.

Kip Louttit, executive director of the Southern California Ocean Exchange, said that Southern California ports are facing more serious congestion than ever before. Some container ships have been waiting on the shore for several weeks, half of which are giant container ships with a carrying capacity of more than 10,000 TEU. This delayed the delivery date and pushed up shipping costs.

Port of Vietnam——

The domestic blockade was restarted, and the port fell into congestion and chaos

Affected by India and Indonesia, the latest round of the Covid-19 crisis broke out in Vietnam. On July 25, Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) and other 19 cities and provinces in the southern region of the country are expected to face another two-week lockdown period.

Saigon New Port (SNP), which manages the Tan Cang Cat Lai Inner City River Terminal in Ho Chi Minh City, notified its customers on the morning of July 26 that Covid-19 has "seriously affected" port operations and port congestion is worsening.

Saigon New Port (SNP) added: “This has had an adverse impact on the operation of the Tan Cang Cat Lai Wharf. Due to the slow pickup or release of imported containers, there is a high possibility of a backlog.”

In addition, the Vietnamese port authorities also warned that due to the pressure of the main port congestion, the circulation and transit capacity between Gilai and the adjacent deep-sea port will also be weakened.

At the port yard, there is also huge pressure to transfer containers. Saigon New Port (SNP) reported that drivers crossing between the provinces of Vietnam must have a negative Covid-19 test result within 3 to 7 days, otherwise they cannot operate; Maersk reports that Cai Mep's cargo deadline has been shortened to 72 hours, further reducing the available truck capacity.

"Fireworks" attack, emergency closure of Shanghai Port and Ningbo Port

Typhoon "Fireworks" started moving northward last weekend, forcing China's Shanghai Port and Ningbo Zhoushan Port to close. It is expected that more freight delays will occur in China this week.

It is reported that due to the impact of Typhoon "Fireworks", the port warehouse has also stopped container loading and delivery to the terminal. More than 40 foreign ships canceled the plan to call at Yangshan Port. At about 8:30 pm on July 26, Yangshan The Hong Kong ushered in the first ship called "Zhonghai Zhiqiu" after the typhoon "Fireworks" passed.

According to a freight forwarder, both the Shanghai Port and Zhoushan Port's wharves and warehouses began to recover yesterday, and it is expected that the berthing time of ships in each port will be delayed by 4 to 6 days. "

In terms of land, due to rain and floods in Henan for days, road transportation was affected by floods, container logistics were interrupted, and another "plug" was filled in for port operations and air transportation.

In this case, due to Delta's invasion of Southeast Asia, the manufacturing industry in Southeast Asia, India, Myanmar and other regions was greatly affected by this, and some orders flowed to China. A series of factors have increased the pressure of congestion in Chinese ports.

The China Ports Association recently stated that shipping capacity will continue to be tight.

Indian ports——

Recently, due to the deadlock in the operation of Indian ports and the serious demurrage of container ships, the relevant parties have begun to cancel the shipment of goods from India. Because the port containers are heavily piled up, there are no empty containers that can be used, causing the goods to stay in multiple ports for a long time. Several weeks long.

The unavailability of containers has changed the rules of the game for shipping. Many ships have begun to bypass Indian ports because there are no containers to carry goods.

Due to the shortage of containers, exporters could not accept new orders, and confirmed orders were cancelled due to delays. This also dealt a heavy blow to cash flow and caused serious losses. The entire industry is facing a sharp drop in shipments.

Last week, South Africa’s state-owned port and freight rail company Transnet SOC Ltd. declared force majeure at the country’s main container terminal after being disrupted by a cyber attack.

According to the notice sent to customers by Transnet, due to the cyber attack on July 22, the Port of Durban, Port Coha Ngqura, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town were all affected.

The notice stated that the impact of these issues will "continue to exist" and force majeure is an accident or uncontrollable event that prevents the company from fulfilling its contractual obligations.

"This cyber attack, security intrusion, and sabotage resulted in the interruption of TPT's normal processes and functions or damage to equipment or information. Investigators are determining the exact source of the intrusion and the extent of the ICT data security breach or damage."

This has further hit South Africa’s fragile recovery from a series of blockades since the Covid-19 pandemic. Transnet is taking "all available and reasonable mitigation measures" to reduce the impact of the outage.

In order to reduce the impact, the container terminal adopts a manual mobile container system, but the speed is relatively slow.

Satellite tracking data showed that the number of ships calling at Durban Port and Port Elizabeth both reached double digits, and long queues began to line up outside the Cape Town terminal.

. . . . . .
Just like dominoes,
One by one, the ports fell into congestion,
There are currently more than 120.
Each of these ports has "unfortunate",
Or Covid-19 was hit hard, or suffered natural disasters, or suffered man-made disasters,
But different routes lead to the same goal,

The result is a "block".


According to industry insiders, global ports are suffering from a deadlock that has not been seen in decades, coupled with the current soaring ocean freight, the global supply chain is about to be destroyed, consumer goods prices have soared in many areas, and people are hoarding goods; there are also manufacturing. The company shuts down the factory with "no rice in the pot"...

But in spite of this, the dominoes congested in the port still seem to be "rumbled" forward...Where is the end point?
