We have received more updates regarding the conditions in the Panama and Suez Canals. Additional carriers have announced a temporary halt of services in the Red Sea and Suez Canal. Furthermore, the ongoing challenges with water levels in the Panama Canal are impacting transit, leading to potential difficulties for East Coast cargo.
As both major gateways to the East Coast are facing hurdles, we anticipate a surge in cargo rerouted via the West Coast. As we prepare for a pre-Chinese New Year push (Feb 10), the beginning of 2024 is projected to be a particularly challenging period.
