Ocean Freight *February 2021 Update*

09 February 2021

We inform you that we are assisting to strong congestion of ports in the United States and Asia which is impacting ocean export operations. Furthermore, all maritime companies are facing overbooking and a general scarcity of equipment. For the next week, we expect several cases of blank sailing and transhipment. Moreover, we expect this situation to persist for the next 4-6 weeks.

Please, be informed that maritime companies have announced that at least until March 2021 booking requests might be declined.
For this reason, if you need to book ocean shipments, please make sure to confirm your booking at least 4 weeks in advance.

The D.B. Group team is doing its utmost to reduce inconveniences and to find alternative solutions for customers.
For further information, we are at complete disposal.
