Maersk: Shipping chaos to last for months – Times of India

[ad_1]

The chaos impacting shipping through the Red Sea is threatening to continue for months, according to the world’s second-largest container line AP Moller-Maersk A/S.
The Copenhagen-based company posted a notice on Friday showing 15 container-line routes affected between Asia and Europe, as well as from the US East Coast to the Middle East. More than 150 tankers listed in the notice servicing ports that include Singapore, Rotterdam and along the Texas and US East Coasts now have revised arrival dates, some extending into March.
The notice showed that vessels on all the lines are being diverted around the Cape of Good Hope. The area in question is an unavoidable seaway for any vessel seeking to access Egypt’s Suez Canal, which shortens the journey between Asia and Europe. Avoiding it means sailing thousands of miles further around Africa.
