Port congestion slows down container transport

Port congestion has once again become a problem for container markets

with the removal of more than 2% of container ship supply since March. Singapore, Dubai, and the Mediterranean are listed as hotspots.
The port of Singapore, the world’s second-largest for containers, is facing delays in docking container ships of up to seven days, with the capacity of containers waiting to dock reaching 450,000 TEU.
The congestion has forced some shipping companies to omit scheduled port calls to Singapore, worsening the situation at subsequent ports that will have to handle additional volumes. Inefficiencies in cargo movement have led carriers to cancel regional calls and empty trips on longer routes to restore schedule reliability, contributing to the highest spot freight rates, seen outside of the COVID era.
