All forwarders, brokers, and shippers are facing an serious disruption in the global supply chain.

All origin ports continue to face equipment shortages, rolled bookings and ever increasing freight costs due to unprecedented demand.

Asia to USA & Canada, as of Dec. 9th, liner carriers have implemented an “Emergency Intermodal Surcharge” EIT, US$ 350.00 per FEU on all cargoes to inland points via rail.

Destination ports are dealing with congested piers, long trucker gate wait & dwell times inside terminals, chassis shortages and extreme difficulties returning empty containers, compounding the chassis shortages, and limiting trucker productivity.

In the USA, the ports of New York and New Jersey, and Los Angeles and Long Beach, are the most critical, leading to delays, pier storage and equipment per diem / rent due to all the port congestion and inefficiencies.

On US All Water Service, Pier Storage & Per Diem rent on Full Containers, including the additional Chassis express, the cost increased to an additional minimum of US$ 400.00 per 20’ and 40’. Mini Land Bridge Rail storage, Per Diem & additional Chassis cost is a minimum of US$ 575.00 per 20’ and 40’.

In the UK, all ports are barely functional.

All is expected to remain critical into 2021.
