Subject: Canada & USA Import – Transpacific Tradelane Update
|Further to our December 17th notice which is enclosed below, Transpacific ocean freight carriers are currently reporting that strong booking forecasts from Asia origins leading up to the Lunar New Year holidays are indicating that demand may outpace available vessel capacity in the coming weeks.
As a result and in order to avoid delays in cargo movement they have asked that shippers book their shipments at least 2 weeks in advance of scheduled vessel departure.
We are therefore recommending that all Delmar clientele advise their suppliers and associates to process upcoming bookings according to these guidelines and provide booking details to Delmar as promptly as possible.
Additional information may be obtained by contacting your local Delmar representative.
