Due to increased chance of shipment delays, we encourage you to plan ahead and ship at least 4 weeks early as we navigate through expected adverse weather conditions brought on by hurricanes and tropical storms, and an increase in cargo volume due to the continuation of pandemic-induced unpredictability.
While adverse weather and the continuing pandemic significantly impact cargo delays, there are other contributing factors that may result in ongoing delays and put considerable constraint on global shipping. Some of these other contributing factors include, but are not limited to:
• Shortage of metal containers.
• Congestion at transshipment points.
• Delays in offloading or unstuffing containers at ports of delivery.
• Irregular timetable and sporadic release of cargo controlled by customs and port offices at many destinations.
• Vessels halted during hurricanes and serious storms.
For the remainder of this year, delays should be expected and we at CCDC will continue to work and collaborate with top shipping services vendors like ZIM, Seaboard, and CMA to overcome shipping delays and other matters outside of our control.
During these unprecedented times, we will continue to do our part to stay abreast of shipment delays and keep you informed of any delays that may impact the shipment of your cargo.
