The overheating of the container market could last for another year. This is what the Danish Sea-Intelligence states in a new analysis.

The agency states that retail stocks in the United States are still exceptionally low and that replenishment, particularly from China, will continue for the rest of the year. In addition, a solution for the heavy congestion in the main US container port, Los Angeles / Long Beach, is not yet in sight. Container ships have to wait there for almost a week on average.

Due to the enormous pressure in container shipping, we have come to a point where one traffic congestion follows another in many ports in the world.

These congestions create a logistical challenging for all involved in this process, both at sea and on land.
