Sea freight news – Post date: June 11th, 2020

There are no reported changes since the beginning of the crisis in the situation of the European ports, the only change is that the number of blank sailings is augmented, so the frequencies coming from Africa are reduced. All ports remain fully operational; this is the case for Antwerp, Rotterdam, Le Havre and Hamburg.

Logistics company Maersk provides a Market Operational Status tool that allows users to determine the countries which are experiencing significant disruption, and updates daily the latest operational status for each country.
