The constant stream of blanked sailings is predictably disrupting many supply chains and networks. Shippers are not getting the message, and it’s costing them extra, unplanned expense. That will percolate down to their customers as well, both in reliability and costs.
And shippers are complaining. No wonder!! The carriers are bringing it on. They are not considering ultimate customer needs.
Anyone wanting to create a disruption in maritime and hinterland supply chains will pay attention and try to do something about this.
