USA | Colombia




Ports/Warehouses: Country-wide
Risk Level: Yellow
Status: Blank sailings and delays
Due to the impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, carriers have blanked dozens of sailings in April and May. Members of THE Alliance including Hapag-Lloyd, Ocean Network Express, HMM and Yang Ming have announced 32 void sailings from Asia to Europe, Transpacific West Coast, Transpacific East Coast, and Transatlantic in response to the expected extreme downturn in demand. The 2M Alliance of Maersk and MSC decided to suspend one weekly service from North Asia to the US West Coast and a weekly string from South Asia to the US East Coast for the entire second quarter, along with blanking additional individual sailings to North America. Carriers said alternate routings will cover port calls offered on the suspended weekly services. Hamburg Sued has not notified of any additional blank sailings yet, but has stated that they will be announced. The carrier also confirmed that no restrictions have been observed to vessel operations, but delivery is being affected in most ports in Central America, South America West Coast, and the Caribbean due to government-imposed curfews/mobility restrictions.
