Mediterranean Region to Canada Update

Despite the ongoing pandemic, global markets have been recovering even faster than expected, with ocean freight carriers experiencing skyrocketing demand in container bookings, resulting in unforeseeable operational challenges.

Carriers servicing the Mediterranean Region have advised that they are facing an extremely tight equipment situation for all container types, especially at depots in Italy, where the situation will remain extremely tight for the next 4-6 weeks.

Vessels sailing from the Region are at maximum capacity for sailings in February, and future bookings may only be accepted for sailings in the first weeks of March, at the earliest.

Delmar will continue to monitor the situation and process bookings as events allow, however, delays can be expected until the market situation has stabilized.

For more information, please contact your local Delmar Representative.
