PEAK SEASON CONGESTION AIR AND SEA

As we reach peak season we are experiencing a backlog of airfreight from most origins and severe congestion with seafreight especially in the transhipment ports of Singapore, Hong Kong and Port Kelang.
Some shipping lines have stopped taking bookings for cargo transiting through Singapore in an attempt to clear the backlog. We are now routing cargo away from these ports where possible and as always using direct services where they are available.

If you have cargo that must route through these ports please allow for extra lead time and speak to your normal CFL contact about any urgent orders.
